They should provide a flight plan for each of the two jumps along with the kicker number to be used. The flight plan can be changed (respecting Rule 4007.3; 4008.7; 6010) until the competitor has announced his jump to the starter prior to performing his competition jump.

The competitor shall announce his planned jump by name immediately prior to entering the starting gate. The planned jump will be checked against the authorized qualification list, which is the authorized category list, (see Rule 4007.3; 4008.7; 6010) announced to the judges, Chief of Scoring and the public.

4008.5 Definition of Different Jumps

A competitor will be required to perform two different Aerials jumps. Jumps shall be considered to be different if in:

4008.5.1 Upright Manoeuvres

Upright manoeuvres, there is a change in the number of manoeuvres performed or the kind of manoeuvre performed;

4008.5.2 Upright Rotational Manoeuvres
