Promotion System

APA Promotion System:

Promotion Scores for each class are set yearly by the APA committee. 

2017 Promotion Scores:

  • Sportsman - 185
  • Advanced - 305
  • Expert - 360
  • F3A - 430
  • F3A Relegation - 385

The Promotion scores listed above are the average score that a pilot is required to achieve at a competition to gain a promotion point.

Promotion scores used are the 3 best (highest) raw flight scores of the first 4 flights (minimum 2 scores for a 3 flight competition).

A pilot is required to achieve 3 promotion points in any 12 month period to gain promotion to the next class. Masters ranked pilots need only achieve one promotion point in any 12 month period to retain their Masters ranking.
