The Lacolle International F5J is sanctioned by the F5J Intertour, ESL and F5J Canada. The Lacolle International ALES is sanctionned by the ALES League.
Note : Since the F5J Intertour calendar year ends with Trnava (SVK), the Lacolle International usually falls as the first contest of the following calendar year, that's 2018-19.
F5J will be by the F5J Canada competition rules, that is allowing emergency motor restarts (which earns 0 points for the round). Weather permitting, the F5J competition will be run as single 2-day competition with flyoffs. Otherwise, this leg of the championship will become a single-day F5J without flyoff.
ALES will be by the AMA rules for event 463, except that altimeters and arrestor devices/skegs will not be permitted. The ALES launch height will be 200m or 150m, called by the CD one day prior to the competition and will remain fixed throughout the day. Landing is measured against a 5 meters tape for 50 points.
