CANOPY PILOTING: STANDARD EVENT
Competition consists of three rounds in each of the following:
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.
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.
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.
