The goal of these rules is to set a framework to allow wingsuit pilots to compare their flights on a common scale, independent from time and location in three different categories, each one stretching a different area of the flight envelope.
Any wingsuit flight recorded with a GPS logger is eligible to participate.
All tracks will be evaluated in a 1000m (3300ft) window between 3000m (9850ft) and 2000m (6550ft) AGL. This gives you enough altitude around the competition zone to settle into an optimal flight position before entering the entry gate and to safely prepare for deployment after leaving the exit gate, leaving ample time to fly back to the DZ in case the spot was not quite perfect.
Each jump will automatically be scored in all three disciplines.
The goal of the time challenge is to fly your wingsuit with maximum lift and to achieve the longest flight time possible.
The longer you stay in the competition window, the better.
Results will be recorded in seconds (s).
The goal of the distance challenge is to fly your wingsuit with maximum glide (lift/drag) and to achieve the longest horizontal distance.
The further you fly while in the competition window, the better.
Results will be recorded in meters (m).
The goal of the speed challenge is to fly your wingsuit with minimum drag and to achieve the highest horizontal speed.
The further you fly in the shortest time while in the competition window, the better.
Results will be recorded in meters/second (m/s).
