I could be preaching to the choir here. But it seems to me that using 2 contests give someone a chance to improve their chances of making the team. Fly poorly in one contest, you still have a chance to improve. Perhaps what could be done is to use regionals as qualifiers for Nationals. Pilots who fly well at either a regional or Fon du Lac would be guaranteed spots to compete at Nationals. The rest could fly as time permits. This would seem to place a greater emphasis on consistent quality flying. That is what USAF wants in the team correct? Perhaps this has been tried in the past... Hal Hitchcock
