|How to fill-in a BAeA Judging
||Here is an example
of a completed judging sheet Form-A. The Form-B is available on
the sequences page of this website. These marks would be
representative of a mid-rank pilot, who would have done much
better if the stall entry to the spin was acceptable and the HZ
for fig-9 was avoided.
|The judge has made
good range of comments which the assistant has recorded in the
Remarks column, so the pilot would be able to see where
he/she lost marks and roughly why.
|If at any point the
aeroplane had moved into the next figure before the judge had
figured out his mark, these comments would be a good basis for
later reviewing the by-passed figure and marking it after the
sequence is finished. They would also serve to keep the figures
freshly in mind if there was a discussion on the judging
line after the flight, in case for example other judges had HZ's
where this judge did not see any cause.
|The Hard Zero was
given for figure-9 because the pilot mistakenly flew the figure
with a 2x4 roll instead of a half roll. Flying the "wrong"
figure is an automatic Hard Zero, but if the error is
"perceived" as in fig-2 then the mark is a Perceived Zero, written as
|There weren't any
penalties given in this sequence, so the scribe has clearly
written "No Penalties" across the penalties area. The same two
lines and the annotation "NP" will do just as well.
|And last of all in the marking
process - the Framing or Positioning mark goes at the top of the
Check that your assistant has correctly filled-in -
Number. This is crucial for the scorer, who must be able
to collate sheets together without ever mixing different
pilot's marks. Flight numbers start at 1 and increment
for each sequence flight.
||Your name and
your judge number. Again - critical for the scorer, to
avoid paperwork mix-ups.
Note! Leave the pilot's
name and the aeroplane type blank because you will not have a flying-order list
with the necessary information. The Chief Judge will
fill in these details if required.
