Process and missions
of the world championship of precision e-piloting

The TOP PILOTS© challenges are inspired by real-life situations: precision championships, air rallies, and the operational reality of civil or military aviation pilots. Each test evaluates the quality of piloting according to three main criteria: the pilot’s observation, the quality of the landing and the efficiency of the mission.

Performance is evaluated based on the pilot’s ability to complete the mission in its entirety and in the most efficient and timely manner possible.

Attention! Penalties will be attributed in the case of dangerous piloting behavior (risky maneuvers, leaving the flight domain, etc…), non-compliance with procedures and violations of aeronautical rules (penetration of prohibited areas, flying over houses…).
