To close the series of consultive meetings promoted by NAC Commission for 
Powered Flight, Milan hosted on Dec 14 a meeting of Italian Aerobatic 
Pilots. You may easily argue what's the matter: rules, National Team and so 
After a detailed report of CIVA Delegate, Giorgio Marangoni, about 
Commission activities and changes to international rules, focus shifted on 
meeting's key points.
A long and hot discussion lead to the formulation of several proposal, 
approved by the majority, to be submitted to NAC for national rules change:
1 - Maintain present championship formula (qualification contests and 
2 - Categories separation to equate numbe of participant pilots at a aontest 
(i.e. Sportsmen + Unlimited, Advanced + Intermediate);
3 - No boundary judges for all categories and tolerated simplified box on 
the ground, to ease organization efforts;
4 - "Unknown Unknowns" for Advanced and Unlimited, i.e. without figures 
proposal by pilots, to avoid "coalitions" and tricks;
5 - "Lots drawing" for Unknowns in Sportsmen and Intermediate;
6 - One only Unknown for Unlimited, compulsory for Contest validation;
7 - Two proposals for 1997 National Team selection, depending on validation 
of 1996 Unlimited Championship:
 - PROPOSAL "Maurizio Costa": Sum two best results among Cuneo 1996  and 
first two 1997 contests (in case Championship is not valid);
 - PROPOSAL "Ruggero Rossini": First 3 pilots of 1996 Championship, remaining 
2 pilots as per sum of results of first two 1997 contests (in case 
Championship is valid);
8 - Inclusion and exclusion of some figures from Sportsmen and Intermediate 
Catalogues, following proposals of Dallan, Poli and Marzetti.
As you can see, we have stuff for everyone. Now, at work!
