Why doesn't USAF hold contests based on CIVA rules for those that want to fly "world type" contests and promote US Team matters and allow the US based IAC chapters focus on the 5 categories as originally intended - and actually encourage and promote the lower categories?

I feel adding another category would be difficult as it would make getting a contest done in 2-3 days next to impossible Another alternative might be to use separate rules and criteria for local contests versus Nationals and the proposed regional contests. Nationals and Regionals would utilize FAI rules including the adopted CIVA knowns making these contests as close to world competition as possible. For local contests IAC would utilize their own rules and a separate known. The IAC rules and the known for local contests could be devised to maintain and even field between monos and biplanes. All members would be able to compete on a level field. This would apply to both Advanced and Unlimited categories and would serve both goals of pleasing the membership who doesnt care about world competition (grass roots) and US Team hopefuls that need to compete in a "World" environment to allow them to be successful in future WAC or AWAC contests Ed Gonzalez Pitts S-1S, N431ED Attachement 1: part2.html
