June 5, 2014 - There’s less than a month left to try and earn a free ticket to Oshkosh to compete in the finals of the Redbird Flight Simulations’ Flying Challenge Cup. Participants have logged more than 4,500 flights in Redbird sims, with an average of 50 flights per day.
At the current rate there will be more than 6,500 flights by the time finalists are chosen in early July; that’s roughly 375 hours of flight time by participants in a little over three months!
Challenges are being flown in 32 states, Canada, and Australia. Some flight schools have incorporated the challenges directly into their real-world pilot training programs, while others have hosted local challenges with prizes.
The 4,500 flights so far is estimated to represent 255 participants, with 53 percent (136) certificated pilots, 27 percent (70) student pilots, and 19 percent (49) non-pilots. The numbers are estimates because not all participants have self-identified in these categories.
There are also more than 1,400 others who have completed registration but haven’t yet flown. These individuals receive updates and training tips just like active participants, and data shows they are reading the content at a rate of two and a half times the average for opt-in communications.
Top score worldwide in Steep Turns is held by a student pilot. Top scores in Precision Landings, Lazy-Eights, and the three events combined are held by rated pilots. However, the spreads are only a couple of percentage points between rated pilots and students.
Top non-pilots are usually only two to five percent behind in all areas except Lazy Eights, where scores run about 10 percent lower. The spread among the top 10 in any given category is generally less than five percent. In other words, it’s still anybody’s game.
The finals on the Plaza Stage at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh take place on Wednesday July 30, starting 9 a.m. Host is world-class aerobatic pilot, Michael Goulian. Video from both inside the simulator and the virtual world in which the pilot will fly will be streamed to the Jumbotron and (we hope) live on the web. Pilots will fly the final challenge, which will be released to all participating schools after the finalists are chosen in early July.
Challenge participants can create a profile at www.flyingchallenge.com and receive a PIN, which will allow them to log onto a Redbird simulator at any participating flight school to launch the challenges. The site also includes complete rules and information for the challenge. Good luck to all participants!
