The following is a list of results included in the 2018 BFA HACD National Eligibility List System.

Events desiring to submit scores for inclusion in the NEL must notify an HACD Board member, National Sanction Manager or National Eligibility List Manager of their intentions PRIOR TO THE EVENT. The HACD may refuse scores submitted without prior notification, not submitted within the 21 day deadline after the event, or not following other portions of the published Rules, Regulations, Policies and Procedures. This notification should include the date and location of the event and contact information regarding results (usually the Scoring Officer or Event Director).

 

After the event the Scoring Officer or Event officials should submit their backup files along with PDFs of the task results to Jan Gilles at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.    The results will then be processed and posted.  

Approved events can be found HERE: https://bfa.net/index.php/events5/competition-event-list

2. 50% or more of the total pilots registered (competitive field) must launch
3. A minimum of six (6) of the registered pilots must fly

 

Also per APPENDIX D Section I:
