The maximum number of participants admitted to the competition is 130:

The Selection will start on 11th April, 2023 and the final list will be published within 14th April, 2023.
In case of equal rankings, priority will be given to the first pilot who made the pre-registration. Registration to the competition becomes effective only after the entry fee payment, which has to be done within 7 days from the confirmation date.
