|Pink Book Rule #22|
Precision Altitude Competition comprises three events open to any model rocket. The purpose of this competition is to accurately predict the altitude that a model will attain.
The contestant must predict the altitude in meters to which the model will be flown. This Predicted Altitude shall be recorded on the flight card and given to the Contest Director or his/her deputy prior to any official flight by the contestant at the meet. The minimum altitude prediction allowable is 100 meters.
The Contest Director shall set the target altitude when the meet is sanctioned. This value shall appear in the sanction form and all appropriate contest information. The target altitude shall be a multiple of 5 meters between 100 and 300 meters. All contestants shall attempt to achieve this same Set Altitude.
The Contest Director shall randomly select the target altitude just prior to when the event is flown, by draw, dice, or other random device. The target altitude shall be a multiple of 5 meters between 100 and 300 meters. All contestants shall attempt to achieve this same Random Altitude.
As a generally accepted (but unwritten) rule, a contestant must make his or her official Precision Altitude flight before any other flights during the day.
