A Letter from the President of IMAC..

Quote:
Contest Standards Guide

The Official IMAC Contest Standards Guide is posted on the IMAC website at the
following address:

http://www.mini-iac.com/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=90

I recommend that every IMAC member have a copy of this document in their possession
as, with its formal posting on the website, The Official IMAC Contest Standards
Guide is now the official policy of IMAC with respect to the way our contests are run.

Please take a moment to read the my intro to The Standards Guide before you read or
download it so as to give you some background on how it came together.

2007 Known Sequences

This year, the selection process was, in many respects, the same as last, with the
overall goal to get the Knowns out to the membership as early as possible so that
folks in the Northern climes could have a chance to fly them before the weather turned
bad.

The Sequence Committee again worked their collective tails off to get the 2007 Known
Proposals to the Board, all the while keeping up with the continuing need for
National Unknowns. They are again to be commended for their work.

For those of you who are new this year, or for those of you who have forgotten, here
is how we pick our Known's:

In short, the ISC designs three proposals in each competition class. The Sportsman
through Unlimited proposals this year were derived from the 2006 National Unknown
program. Basic was again designed from the parameters set up for this introductory
class. Next the three top choices in each class are test flown to insure compatibility
with the criteria set up for each class, in other words, the sequences were designed
with not only each class in mind but also the skill levels required to move from one
class to the next. Also factored in is the relationship of difficulty between the
Known and Unknowns flown in each class.

From my Presidential Update on this subject from of this last year I wrote: "The
important thing for the membership to remember when considering the new Known proposals
is to be mindful of the fact that the Known and Unknowns we fly going forward are
tied together with the goals stated above and as such, the structure and flow of the
Knowns will relate not only to the class itself but to the other classes as well as
the stated goals for the National Unknown program. Therefore, I ask all of you to
not only consider your individual class when looking at the Knowns but also consider
the big picture of how the classes relate to each other as well as the relative
difficulty when being compared to the Unknowns you have flown this year."

Next, the top three choices in each class were forwarded to the IMAC Board for
consideration, debate and approval of the final sequence in each class. The IMAC Board
also has the ability to make changes to the final selections as well.

Well that is how we do it! With that said, I am now pleased to release to the Scale
Aerobatic Community, the Official 2007 IMAC Known Sequences. They are available now
on our website homepage, in the left sidebar, at the following link:

My thanks to all the IMAC pilots and volunteers who, through their efforts, made
2006 a very successful competition season.

Wally Pitts
IMAC President

sweetpea,

That is correct. These are the final sequences for the year. Read Wally's Presidents Update for the scoop. The Sequence Committee handled the whole process this year.

Regards,

Anna

I always enjoyed flying the proposals, oh well. They look like they will flow well.

Has anyone noticed that we haven't had a cuban eight in a known in a few years?

Its a half knife edge loop with a 3/4 whoopdie doo. Naw its just a cross box humpty. 2/8 is a 1/4 roll, then push the half loop over the top. The 3/4 roll on the downline puts you back on heading for a parallel box exit.

Re: 2007 IMAC sequences released

Yes, you are pushing over the top on the y-axis (cross box). Then a 3/4 roll in the appropriate direction to get you back on the x-axis heading in the correct direction.

You can fly the y-axis push coming towards yourself or going away from yourself. It is pilot's discretion on the y-axis. But what ever way you decide to go with the push over the top will set the roll direction of the downline so you end up heading in the right direction when you pull to level flight back on the x-axis.

Regards,

Anna

That is not a dumb question. You know the saying the only dumb questions are the ones not asked..... :-)

Glad you have it figured.

Later,

The group that writes sequences has done a great job. The national unknown program was a huge success this year also.
