For the purpose of the 29th April – 1st May 2017 event in Zhengzhou, the following clarifications apply:
World Air carnival Ltd CEO & Contest Director:
New location page added.
Official observers are permitted
Hotel, food, local transport, with daily entry total 1200€
The performance zone is noted at 1500 x 500 metres. This is a recommendation only, you may use a greater or lesser display area. You may use an area as required for your performance. The over-riding factor is the dead line.
There are no crowd rear arrivals.

Questions posed by a team leader:
If I read the rules correctly we don’t get scored on/don’t have to do formation changes in the classic sequence?
May the ‘Bomb Burst’ only start at 90° or parallel to the deadline or can I start at a 45° angle?
It is appreciated that for the Signature sequence, some teams will NOT have sufficient smoke oil for continual use. It is therefore permitted to use smoke only when ‘centre stage’.
For the Classic sequence, any figure can only be repeated once
Future alteration to the CIVA Section-6 Part 5b FAC Regulations – The below change of rule will be enforced at the event in Zhengzhou:
The change will highlight that if any team wishes not to fly a stated mandatory figure they are entitled to declare an alternative from the published non-mandatory figures. The alternative figure must be at least 5K less than the non-flown mandatory figure.
Example: Those wishing not to fly the Butterfly Loop (20K) should select one of the non-mandatory figures instead, with a limit of 15K for the substituted figure. That makes these figures the ‘substitute list’:
