Notes

 

McAulley note
This prestigious trophy dates from 1962, the sequence format now requiring Sports pilots fly the Known Compulsory programme plus 3 free figures totalling a maximum of 30K to be performed immediately after the Known but with an unpenalised break for height / repositioning if required. Within these three figures, no manoeuvre (i.e. Aresti Catalogue number) may be repeated. The aim is to introduce the concept of Free sequence design at an early stage to help pilots in their progress up the aerobatic ladder.

Here are links to two very useful documents that can help you decide these extra figures, construct the necessary forms and send the result to the BAeA office. For judges the paperwork must be clear or they may find your efforts hard to assess. The whole sequence can then be practised to allow you to compete to the best of your ability.
