F5K – Contest Format

F5K to the CIAM

This year (2019) I have been very busy designing the F5k competition format. A survey was conducted and the 4 most popular tasks were chosen from it. A new task has also been created.

In cooperation with Aerobtec I have developed special F5K software to capture multiple launches and control both motortime and maximum altitude. With help from JustFlySolutions we were able to have the very first F5K contest “The Losser Open”.

Now, 15 November, I am very proud to announce that F5K will be an official FAI class. The format with all rules have been send to the CIAM. Many pilots from all over the world are interested in organizing a F5K in 2020. What a result!
