CANOPY PILOTING: STANDARD EVENT

Competition consists of three rounds in each of the following:

 

SPEED

Goal is to navigate the parachute through the boundaries of the course in the fastest time possible. Lasers are used at each "gate" of the course to measure the timing and position of each competitor. 

 

DISTANCE

Goal is to begin by dragging a foot in the water before Gate 1 and then continue to fly straight down the course as far as possible. The distance is measured from the entry gate to the first point of contact with the ground. The world's best athletes have shown flights up to 222 m.

 

ACCURACY

Goal is to drag a foot through as many water gates as possible and then land in the accuracy zone. 10 points are deducted if a stand-up landing is not achieved.
