New South Wales Pattern Flyers

Just an average group of flyers with an obsession for precision aerobatics.

The point score will combine all classes into one. The results will be based on the normalised final results for each class. This means that anyone who consistently attends our events and finishes high up in the standings will be rewarded. The actual points allocation will be based on the system currently employed by the F3A World Cup events. If you finish first second or third in your class bonus points will be added to your score as per the tables below.

A) N>20

Placing 1 2 3 4 5 6 20 21 and after

A bonus of 8 points is given to the first placed competitor; 5 points to the second placed and 3 points to the third.

B) N<20

Placing 1 2 3 4 5 6 N-1 N
Points N N-1 N-2 N-3 N-4 N-5 2 1

 

The bonus is defined as follows:

- For first place: N/3 rounded up to the nearest whole number of points, with a maximum of 7 points;

- For second place: N/5 rounded up to the nearest whole number of points, with a maximum of 4 points;
