Alternate Event Times

After consulting with all Airalympic Teams, we will also be holding the Landing Competition on March 19 at 0500Z to ensure that all competitors may compete. Pilots who are not able to attend this session will be able to compete tomorrow. To ensure a fair competition the conditions at 0500Z must not exceed these preset guidelines.

Winds: Within 7 knots of conditions at 1530Z
Visibility: Within 2 NM of conditions at 1530Z
Time: All pilots should have time set to noon (at both events).


The time is 2:30 am for us aussies (at least in the east coast) and midnight for most of Australia anyway. It would be great if more of us could show up but time doesn’t really suit
