These schedules are in the proposal stage and are subject to discussion. At the moment, we are not looking for an all out competitive association, they just give people something to aim at to improve their flying. Both are non -turnaround type.


Novices can select any 5 manoeuvres from the Intermediate schedule and fly these in any order.

These manoeuvres need to be declared to the Contest Director before the start of the event.

Historical Collection

We have been collecting a number of historical F3A (and earlier) pattern schedules.

The descriptions may not be wholly accurate but they are a wonderful indication of how the schedules have developed:-

These first few are up to the start of the turnaround era - 1960 -1984






The Turnaround era


1990 GBR/CAA Standard Schedule

1989/90 FAI Master

Moving further forward in time, the AMA 1992- 1993 Aerobatic Contest rules are also now available for download.

More to come - hopefully
