Competition Committee

The Australian Competition committee deals with competitive matters relating to disciplines administrated by the HGFA.

The aims of the competition committee are:

  • To provide a safe and structured pathway for pilot development from entry level fly-ins through to elite level competitions.
  • To achieve and maintain (for Australian pilots) a high standard of competitive performance at international competitions.
  • To determine national champions in all classes.
  • To provide the base data for determining a national pilot ranking system (The National Ladder).
  • To encourage fun, skill improvement and increased participation.
  • To assist in the promotion of the sport.
