Attention competition pilots! The new FAI Sporting Code S7B for aerobatic paragliding has been released! Quick summary of changes:
In 2018 only one technical change is introduced.
Until last year the only manoeuvre allowed to be reversed was the Misty to heli (Misty reverse).
The reversed manoeuvre becomes now a new choreography bonus, like for twisted and flipped manoeuvres.
The manoeuvres performed reversed (max. 2 per run) will increase the choreography mark as follows:
Reversed Misty to Heli: +6%
Reversed Heli to SAT: +7%
Reversed Mac Twist to Heli: +7%
Reversed Cork: +8%
Reversed SAT to Heli: +9%
Reversed Joker: +10%
New maneuver introduced: MISTY TO SAT
Same criteria as for a Misty Flip. Minimum 45° climb before rotation + transition to SAT + SAT criteria.
Flow and speed of transition.
Twisted Misty to SAT: must be twisted during the entry, untwisted by the rotation of the Misty flip.
Forbidden connection to SAT.
Technical scoring coefficient: 1.70
