The World Advanced Aerobatic Competition is finished.
We came 17th overall.
We started off to an average start (8th Position) in program one, after dealing with an issue with the aircraft stalling at a low G due to a fuselage seal issue.
In the Second program I had adapted my flying technique to compensate and was able to place 5th.
This took us to 4th overall after the 2nd program.
However in the 3rd I made a large error on one of the figures which resulted in a hard zero. Pulling me from 4th place to 17th.
In the final flight I flew extremely conservative and thus only placed 11th.
-Fly each flight as a separate flight, forgetting previous results.
-Become more adaptable to mechanical/technical issues.
-Arrange to use our own aircraft for the next world competition and carry spare parts.
-Gain More competition exposure. This is our 3rd competition and we have seen that more experience in competition will help in tackling a lot of the challenges we experienced.
Simply put the other pilots where much better competitors and flew to a great standard.
While we are not happy with the result, we have learnt a lot and figured why this occurred. We will be applying the lessons we have learnt to the next competition and to our training in the lead up.
Would like to thank my sponsors, InCrew and FlyJet for there support as well as all my family, friends and fans. I would not be here with out you.
