UTT Rules, Procedures & Regulations

General Event Regulations:

• The Universal Course must be setup to exact specifications and measurements provided by the setup diagram. 
• The course terrain must be as flat as possible with as ample space around the perimeter to allow for unrestricted turns. 
• All MultiGP safety precautions must be adhered to. 
• Universal Course time trials must take place during a scheduled MultiGP Chapter Event and run by a designated Chapter Organizer. 
• Racing gates must be standard issue MultiGP Racing Gates or another gate with a 5’x5’ or smaller opening.

Pilot Rules:

• All gates must be passed through. If a gate is missed, the pilot must turn his aircraft around and pass through the gate. 
• If a suggested flight path is illustrated, directions must be followed as contained within the setup diagram.
• Pilots must have a spotter to count laps and alert the pilot of any safety issues.

Chapter Organizer Procedures:


• A timing system with transponders is highly recommended. 
• If a timing system is not available, a stopwatch or standard method of time measurement must be used. A dedicated timekeeper with a clear view of the finishing gate must be assigned if this option is used. 
• Please provide a safety tent with netting if the timekeeper is positioned close to the finish gate. 
• Pilot times are measured by completing the fastest single lap defined by the start/finish gate.

Executing Time Trials:

• The pilot should pass through the start/finish gate at a competitive speed when beginning. This is designed to trigger a transponder when using a timing system. 
• There is no limit to how many times a pilot may run the time trial. This is determined by how many pilots attend and how the Chapter Organizer wishes to run the event.

Submitting Results:

  • It is the duty of the Chapter Organizer or Assistant Chapter Organizer to collect the official times of each pilot. 
    • Chapter Organizers should submit each pilot’s best time on the official Universal Course Pilot Time Submission Form.
