Birdman Performance Cup
During the Birdman Boogie We will also run an unofficial Birdman Performance Cup with newly adapted official FAI rules. We will have a briefing about it on Wednesday morning and seminar about performance flying on Tuesday evening. We also have the whole team at your disposal to learn the secrets of ultimate flight.
3 x 2 rounds as follows (from FAI rules):
Objective of the Event
3.1.1 The objective is to fly a single wingsuit in three separate tasks to demonstrate a combination of best lift (time task), best glide ratio (distance task) and least drag (speed task). Each round of the event is therefore comprised of the three tasks. Each task is performed on a separate flight.
3.2.1 Time Task: The wingsuit flyer is to fly with the slowest fall rate possible through the competition window. The result for this task will be the time taken to fly through the competition window, expressed in seconds, rounded to one decimal place.
3.2.2 Distance Task: The wingsuit flyer is to fly as far as possible through the competition window. The result for this task will be the straight-line distance flown over the ground while in the competition window, expressed in meters, rounded to whole numbers.
3.2.3 Speed Task: The wingsuit flyer is to fly as fast as possible horizontally over the ground through the competition window. The result for this task will be the straight-line distance flown over the ground while in the competition window divided by the time spent in the competition window, expressed in meters per second (m/s), rounded to one decimal place.
We will run the competition on the side of the boogie with the best of our ability. The competition does not have an official status (yet) so this is the best way to learn without added stress. We don't have many FlightSights to offer so please try to bring one if you are interested in learning and competing at the Birdman Performance Cup.
