Three lines comprise "The Box": Zero, 100 feet short, 200 feet long. The goal? Land as close to the zero line as possible. Land outside the box? You lose. Land with improper crosswind correction? Penalty. Bounce? Penalty. The closer you get to the line, the fewer points you get - just like golf!
You get the idea. Precision landings are our most challenging and exciting event.
There are two precision landing events that you can participate in:
- Short Field Approach and Landing (Power-Ons)
- Power-Off Landing
As the names suggest, they differ mostly in whether or not the pilot has power available to them while landing.
