    As a new Basic pilot who started practicing late last year I appreciate the sequences as well as the Guides.
    Very helpful to us newbies!

    Thanks Ty..... I knew it would be fixed. A few Italian members also brought the issue up on the IMAC Italian Facebook page and I mentioned there that they should not cross "infect/pollinate" Scale Aerobatics rules with the FAI's F3A rules on where rolls are placed in a loop. Your fixing it will put the issue to rest.

    The roll delimiters are displayed in the hard copy catalog. However, in the Aresti software the delimiters are not displayed by default unless there is a net roll change of 180 degrees in the loop; they must be enabled manually. It was a simple over sight and has been fixed.

Other recent schedules with elements on the bottom of a down loop have markers as I've illustrated in the right side loop.
    Hi Peter..... The "Hatch" marks were left out by mistake/oversight. I'm sure it will be fixed eventually. The loop should have the delineation marks displayed. As a previous Sequence Committee Chairman for 10 years, the marks are always displayed, even in the Aresti Catalog for loops.

    I checked all the way back to 2002 (17 years) and this is the FIRST TIME I have seen such a thing put out for public consumption for a Known. If we look on the Unlimited, we will see that it was included there....However, the Sportsman, & Intermediate also have the marks missing.

    The 2019 Knowns will be pulled down shortly. If you would like a copy then grab them or if they are gone, just ask me and I can get them to you. On to 2020!!

    Hello Peter,
    Hope all is well down under. The roll must be integrated into the curvature of the loop and must be centered in addition to all the regular roll criteria, ie constant rate, etc. How much of the loop that roll takes up is up to the pilot. For instance, a pilot could start the roll 10 deg before the bottom of the loop and finish 10 deg past the bottom. On the other extreme, the roll could take up half (or more) of the loop. Marks that are sometimes found on figures are just centering reminders and have no significance regarding the start / finish of the rolling element. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the new sequences! The hard work by committee and test pilots is much appreciated. Looks like I have some work to do on the sim this winter.

    I want to thank the members of the Sequence Committee and please that you do the same. This small group of people put a huge amount of work and hours in to provide these every year. They start for the following year in June or July and write, check, test and tweak and fly until ready for you. They deserve all the credit on this monumental task taken on for our sport!
    A big thanks also to Skip Messick, who, though not part of the ISC, spent a great deal of time flight testing sequence proposals and giving valuable feedback.
