FLYTOP Competition class is a two-tier class:
The first tier, taking place before the competition officially starts—in the best case between two and four weeks prior to the opening of the competition—trains the competition staff. This includes, of course, the competition lead, but also supporting staff, including:
- Tow pilots
- Grid staff, etc.
The second tier takes place on the first scoring day or, if applicable, on the mandatory training day. However, the endeavour for safety is not done with a single briefing. This part, where all staff and all participants take part, is a kick-off for the continued effort of everybody to achieve maximum safety during the competition.
In contrast to the known flight safety briefings during competitions, behaviour with (positive) security relevance attains greater weight:
Safety will pay off in socring points!
