SAC Rules amended to reflect changes to the CIVA programmes

In line with the 2016 changes to Programmes 1 and 2 for all CIVA categories (Unlimited, Advanced and Intermediate/Yak52), we have amended the relevant sections of our local regulations to reflect these changes. There is provision for an additional Programme 4 (Free Unknown #3) to be flown.

The Sportsman/RV/Classic category still requires a Known and Free programme to be flown and the versatility requirements for the Free programme have been amended to reflect a total of 120k as opposed to 110k in previous years.

You can find the new version of the regulations in the Briefing Room section.
