Aerial Scramble (also called Aerial Scrambler) is a Division B and Division C trial event. It was run in both divisions at the North Carolina and Indiana state tournaments in 2018 and 2019, and in Division B at the Georgia state tournament in 2019. The event requires that teams assemble and fly an airplane on site.

The Event

At the event, competitors will be given two model airplane kits, such as the AMA Alpha. This kit will not require adhesives, and can be disassembled to fly again. The competitors will be given a minimum of 20 minutes to build the airplanes and test them, with the goal of making them fly for as long as possible. At the end of the building/testing time, the competitors will make up to two timed flights, using one or both of their airplanes. Any tools used, as well as any custom rubber or winders, must be brought by the competitors.



The final score is calculated by adding the lengths of both flights together. Ties are broken by the longest single flight time.
