Aircraft Judging Manual (complete version)
Note: No revisions have been made to the judging standards manual in 2012; the manual in effect until further notice has a revision date of October 2011.
Judging for aircraft awards closes at the following times:
- Warbirds: Registered for judging no later than 8:30 a.m. Thursday
- Rotorcraft: Noon, Thursday
- Vintage, Homebuilt, and Ultralight/Light-Sport Aircraft: Noon,
- Seaplanes: Noon, Friday
If you are expecting to have your aircraft judged, please plan on
giving the judges at least one full day in advance of the close of
judging for the volunteer judges to view your aircraft. For example,
if judging in your area ends at noon on Friday, having your aircraft
on the airport and registered no later than Wednesday
evening or first thing Thursday morning will give the judges
adequate time to review it.
