World Rally Flying Championship 2016
In Rally Flying, the pilots must have the ability to execute one of the most pure and demanding air challenges, as land an aircraft on a 2 meters box, fly vertically of unknowns targets or identify “hidden” marks on the ground. This is one of the most demanding Air Sports, resulting on a very difficult tactical mission, with amazing scenes for spectators during the precision landings.
Cyprus participated with 2 crews. The whether on the last training day that our teams had the chance to participate was not adequete and as a result the only cyprus crew that attempted a training flying had to divert to a nearby airfield. The aircraft supplied to the Cyprus team by the organisers was an Ultralight Homebuilt Technam with very limited instrumentation (no Direction Indicator, faulty compass, the tachometer in Kml, engine failed in low rpms) very long wingspan to body ratio and under power. Irrespective to the results the teams have gained valuable knowledge in relation to the aircraft choice, plotting and CRM principles.
