Hilton Cup Rules for 2000-2001


These rules are also available in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format by clicking here.

The competition covers a one-and-a-half year period, running from March 15, 2000 until September 15, 2001 in the Northern Hemisphere.

Only completed triangular flights with a minimum flying distance of 400 Kilometers will be accepted.

The shortest leg of the acceptable triangular course must fulfill the requirements of FAI Sporting Code 1.4.6 b (iii). If the acceptable triangular course does not fulfill this requirement, a reduction of 12.5% will be applied.

One point per Kilometer flown will be awarded for each submitted flight, then adjusted using the BHC handicap factor based on the sailplane used.

Pilots may submit any number of flights meeting the criteria; only the highest scoring flight will be counted in determining the winner.

Use the following certification procedures for each of the following regions:

Region 1 - Europe: according to the BHC-entry form or the German DMST procedure.

Region 2 & 3 - Americas East and West: use SSA badge forms.

Region 4 - Australia/Africa: use FAI badge forms.

Region 5 - New Zealand and Japan: use FAI Badge forms.

FOR U.S. FLIGHTS ONLY: Flights must be reported, in writing, to the SSA office within 7 days of the flight. Submission of the application must be postmarked to the SSA office within 45 days of the flight, but no later than October 15 each year.

In the event of a tie, the pilot who landed first will be the winner. If this does not identify a winner, a coin toss by the Competition Director will decide.

In the event of a dispute, the decision of the Competition Director is final.
