TASK CATALOGUE FOR THE 11th WORLD PARAMOTOR CHAMPIONSHIPS Competition at SAQUAREMA, BRAZIL APRIL, 20 TH – 30TH 2022

The principles of this championship are based on guidelines and principles of the FAI rules. The purpose of the tasks defined in the Competition Classic is to simulate real world flight situations, tasking the skills of the pilots against each other in a way that can be measured simply and fairly, avoiding bring excessive danger to the pilots. Flying such tasks should be an enjoyable experience. Thus, the basic principles of the 2020 Championship can be characterized by four key words:

SAFE – FUN – SIMPLE – FAIR

SAFE
There are no Slalom Tasks for this Event. This is a Classic Competition that should provide an alternative to the extreme sport events, while remaining true to the spirit of cooperation and integration of pilots for which they were designed, providing a mix of “navigation, economy and precision tasks”. Our priority is that all pilots return to their homes on their walking over own feet !!!

FUN
We fly paramotors because brings us pleasure and it’s fun. It follows that as more tasks are flown in a competition, as more enjoyable it becomes for all pilots and give them more opportunity to fully demonstrate their skills and get good results.
The Director of the Competition will define tasks that are adequately complex to challenge the best pilots without slowing down the competition. Tasks for different classes can be performed independently in order to use the airspace more effectively and maximize flight opportunities. These tasks will be sufficiently challenging to the pilot’s skills in having to fly on a new and different location.

SIMPLE
Competition tasks must be simple, without being easy. There is much evidence listed in Annex 4 of the FAI, many of which were few used in classical competitions FAI. To simplify the competition, only a few navigation tasks, accuracy and economy were selected based on worlds last competitions and indications of FAI rules of 2020. This will allow shorter briefings and reduce the risk of mistaken (especially when it is the first time that pilots have contact with these tasks), in addition to waste time with planning too long problems and long delays for the release of scores.

FAIR
Being fair is another main principle of the competition. The tasks must be designed primarily to measure the pilot’s skill and to minimize the chance of random elements that affect the score. The classic competitions should reward the pilots to have a balanced set of skills and a balanced equipment. This directs the development of equipment and pilots, since the classic competitions encourage the training of many abilities and development of paramotors increasingly well designed.
