CIVA’s new “Open Tour Series”

Published: 15th Apr 2021 by Nick Buckenham

Following discussions earlier this year among Bureau members, CIVA has developed a new concept in regional aerobatic competitions to be known as the CIVA Open Tour Series or COTS.

The aim is to run a linked set of national contests, initially only for Unlimited Power pilots, where a simpler set of programmes than usual at FAI aerobatic championships will be run for a limited field of competitors so that the overall event duration can be reduced to a little over four days. To provide continuity between the events a new points system will be used to cumulate all the results, leading to a final overall table from which we can declare a series winner.
