To be honest with you, I don't think you need to know this. i've gone three years in road scholar up to Nats, and I've never had to answer a question regarding anything remotely close to UPS.
Problems are better pursued with General Electric GE90-115 engines.

2016 Nats:
Road Scholar:4th 8-)
Bottle Rockets: 9th
Meteorology: 11th
Gliders: 21st

(other events: Green Gen, Crime Busters, Helicopters, Hovercraft, Air trajectory)
