The novice class is designed for pilots who would like to try IMAC in a stress free, non-competitive environment. Novice class will fly on Saturday only. Aircraft for this class DOES NOT need to be a scale aerobatic aircraft, it just needs to be able to perform basic aerobatic maneuvers. Pilots in this class will fly the 2021 Basic sequence along with the Basic class and will be judged and scored by IMAC certified judges. Novice pilots will receive tips, techniques and advice/feedback after their class is complete. This is a fantastic way to be involved in what precision aerobatics is all about, without the stress of competition within the contest. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. As a disclaimer, there is no antidote for the IMAC bug bite, it's simply art in the sky!
