2018 F3J Team Selection

In accordance with the published process (MGASA blog 28 March 2011) to select an F3J team to represent South Africa at the World Championships in Buzau, Romania in 2018, we invite participants to the F3J Selection events.

The events are scheduled as follows:
Qualifier 1 on 30 April and 1 May 2017 with a backup weather date of 14 May 2017
Qualifier 2 on 11 June 2017 with a backup weather date of 18 June 2017

In the event that more than 3 senior pilots and 1 junior pilot are able to qualify and wish to attempt to qualify for the team then the top 10 pilots are invited to the F3J Team Trials. The top 10 pilots are determined by taking each pilot’s best score of the two events and normalising to a percentage. This means only one of the two qualifiers has to be attended.

The Team Trials event is scheduled as follows:
Team Trials on  3 September 2017 with a backup weather date of 27 September 2017.

This selection would be run in accordance with the FAI/CIAM regulations, with modifications to the rules as allowed by the Model Gliding Association. 
A maximum of 6 and a minimum of 2 rounds will be flown at each event.

Due to the nature of F3J and available manpower it is not possible to fly in teams, a man on man matrix will be applied .

Only SAMAA members are eligible to take part in National team selection. 

The eligibility and allocation of National Colours are subject to SASCOC conditions and requirements.

The top 3 pilots and top junior pilot qualify as members of the National Team and the fourth placed pilot as reserve.
