Sportsman is the entry-level class into F3A competitions, and involves a sequence of manoeuvres performed in front of the pilot and judges. There is a lot of similarity between gold wings and the Sportsman’s sequence, so you are able to practice both at the same time. The Sportsman schedule / call card can be found here, and a detailed description of the manouevres here.

Now a big thank you to Russell Edwards (with a little help from David Gibbs and Bill Bloodworth) for their efforts in pulling these together.
