[Postponed]Landing Contest | Show me those greasers... @ KSJC - 151945ZJUN18

Hey IFC! @lucaviness here, callsign MAVERICK. Can you “butter the bread”? Do you have it in you to “rudder” the judges speechless? Most importantly, can you prove it? Sign up for one of only 10 open spots to prove to the community that you are the best! Now stop talking Luca, let this event “take-off”!

Server: Expert

Region: San Francisco Bay Area

Airport: KSJC

Date: TBD

Time: 1945Z

NOTAM: This event is available to only Grade 3 and above. In other words, only if you can access the expert server. We will take-off out of KSJC in a Boeing 737-900, make a quick pattern and then start landing. Please be prompt and respectful.



Judge 01: @lucaviness
Judge 02: @Delta_Alpha_Lima
Judge 03: @ERAU_Hatsune

Stand By Judge: position open


You will be judged on a scale from one to ten based on three criteria: smoothness, centerline, and technique. Smoothness is how smooth you touch down and how little adjustment you have to do. Centerline is how well you are lined up with the center of the runway from crossing the threshold to coming to a complete stop. Technique is your speed, flare, braking, etc. Once averaged out between the three judges we will find the overall score. This determines your placement. If you have an overall of 1/10 it just means others did better than you, not that your other scores averaged out to one. A spreadsheet will be posted following the conclusion of the event with all of the scores from each judge along with a video of everyone’s landings.
