The basic formula is that aircraft with 260 hp or more are excluded, but 
most aircraft are approved/disapproved by CIVA on a case-by-case basis (the 
SU-26 is excluded btw). Other than any aircraft with less than 260 hp, 
these are the current exceptions which are OK for European or World 

Zlin 50L, LA, LS, and LX
Pitts S-1 (all models except S-1-11B)
Pitts S-2B (CIVA has not addressed the S-2C, unless it happened at the 
November meeting)
Pitts S-2S
Ultimate 300
Yak 54, 55

Initial approval for a new type to compete in Advanced competitions may be 
sought by the CIVA delegate of the country concerned and granted by CIVA at 
its plenary meeting or by the Bureau of CIVA is so authorized.

The current list of excluded and included aircraft can be found in Appendix 
6 of the CIVA Regulations, Part 3 - "Events for Advanced Category". That 
regulation is currently available only in print form, but will be available 
"in the near future" at <>.
