Contest schedule for 1997 Italian Aerobatic Championship has been approved 
and is listed below. Contests flights are held exclusively on Saturday and 
Sunday, in order to ease efforts of both pilots and judges, which have their 
own work to think about during weekdays. Thus, categories have been grouped 
in Sportsmen - Unlimited and Intermediate - Advanced, with the important 
side effect of equating total number of contestants for each run.
Sportsmen and Intermediate are held on 3 programs, one Known and two 
Unknowns: contest is declared valid after Known and Unknown #1. Advanced is 
held on one Known, one Aresti Freestyle (300K, 15 figures), and two 
Unknowns: contest valid after Known and Free. Unlimited is held on Known, 
Aresti Freestyle (420K, 17 figures) and Unknown, and is valid after Known 
and Free.
Since many problems arise in Italy, where terrain is mostly uneven and 
population density is high, box has been withdrawn and substituted with a 
simple display line in front of judges. To allow a better assessment of 
flights, K factor for positioning has been increased to 20 for all flights 
and categories.
Scoring system is once more the so-called "Mini-Bauer", where highest and 
lowest scores are discarded figure by figure and averaged at the end. 
Judging panel is composed by 5 peoples.
Finally, National Titles are awarded by summing best contest points % scored 
during the season and the one scored in the Final. In case final is not 
declared valid (as happened in 1996 for Unlimited because of weather), 
Titles are awarded on best points % only.
This method allows pilots to organize their season on a free basis, 
participating to contests more close or practical for them as they wish, and 
"taking home" a bias results for Final.
For full-text version of National Rules, Known Programs, Figures Catalogues 
and any further detail have a look on the Internet to AeroWEB - The Web of
