Η FAI μας ενημέρωσε για αλλαγές στο FS, το πρόγραμμα βαθμολόγησης των αγώνων αποστάσεων:

Dear Organizers and NAC officials,


New FS releases were made in order to keep to CIVL Plenary 2018 decisions and to reduce turnpoint radius tolerances forcing all pilots in a competition to fly the same distance.

In FAI Category 1 events (world- and continental championships), only one earth model will be used for evaluation:

a. FAI sphere for hang-gliding (2018)

b. WGS84 ellipsoid for paragliding, and from 2019 for hang-gliding as well

The turnpoint radius tolerance is reduced from 0.5% to 0.05%, with a minimum of 5 metres.

Important: This rule applies exclusively to FAI Category 1 events, where pilots can be expected to fly with equipment that complies with this rule.


For FAI Category 2 events, and all unsanctioned events, CIVL recommends

1. Transition to WGS84 where possible (using FS2018)

2. Continue using a tolerance of 0.5%
