The Landing Competition is a high-stakes event in which competitors will be graded on the following criteria: Center-line (10/10), Touchdown Zone (10/10), and Smoothness (10/10), for a possible score of 30 points from each judge. The three scores will be averaged for a final score out of 30 points. All contestants will get three attempts, the highest scoring being their final score. All pilots participating in the event will depart from the Aruba Island, and once all attempts have been completed, will exit the runway and park in their assigned spot.
