The Contest Weighting Factor depends on the competition type and class. Since 2013 the following weights have been in effect.
|Type/Class||Contest Weighting Factor|
|Full Contest||Three-Day Contest||Two-Day Contest|
|FAI-class and Sports-class National competitions||100||95||0|
|Regional FAI-class and Sports-class, and Championships (Seniors and 1-26)||92||92||88|
Team entries (applies to all Regional classes and Sport Nationals) receive a ranking score that applies to the team; individual members (maximum of four) of the team receive a ranking score equal to 75% of the team's ranking score.
A pilot's score on this list is the best Pilot Ranking score achieved in any sanctioned contest within the previous three years. The ranking is used for determining contest entry qualification and preferential entry into contests that may be oversubscribed.
