The Australian Light Aircraft Championships (ALACs) are a national competition between member clubs of the RFACA and have been conducted annually for over 60 years.
The championships are conducted over two days at a different location each year, with a scheduled practice day immediately before.
The championships are open to non-professional pilots who are members of RFACA member aero clubs, who are licensed and appropriately endorsed. The aircraft utilised are light general aviation aircraft, usually C152s, C172s and Warriors.
The events are aerobatics, formation, and streamer cutting, as well as two precision circuit events – the spot landing and forced landing competitions. They are safe and easy to fly for pilots within a wide range of experience and proficiency, but harder to fly accurately! A qualified flight instructor occupies the right-hand seat as an air judge in the landing and streamer cutting events.
There are prizes for individual events, overall champion and if you are a member of a club team, you are competing for the Federation team trophy.
