RTW 2018 Question re "Rookies"

Post by PhantomTweak » Thu Feb 15, 2018 8:21 pm

This will be my, and Poncho Villa's, first Race with Team SOH, but not our first Race over-all. We were in Team Flightsim previously.
Does this make us "rookies" for the purpose of Mulligans, and so on, that "rookies" are entitled to?
I wouldn't think so, but it can't hurt to ask :)
Thank you for any answer.

Pat,
Special Rule 12 (New Pilots) describes the situation. Specifically, it says:
"A new pilot is one who has not yet been an official pilot of record or who is returning to the race after an absence of at least two years."
It focuses on participation in the Race and is not 'team specific'. As such, while you may be donning a new shirt for this year's race, if you have been a pilot-of-record in the last two years, then the answer is no, you do not qualify as a "Rookie" or New Pilot under Rule 12.
