Ryan had absolutely no time spare time to pull off this Forced Landing.

I asked Ryan to describe his world for me to use as a basis for one of the initial voice overs, and here’s what he wrote:
“Competition aerobatics is all about precision and flying for the judges. Every maneuver is graded starting from 10.0 and the judges deduct from there, based on a set of criteria in the rule book. What’s more important is what the judges see on the ground, vs what you see in the cockpit. You not only have to fly clean, you also need to manage the aircrafts energy throughout the flight while accounting for the environmental conditions to make sure you’re actually flying in the right spot, because parallax and position, affect your scores. At the world level, one mistake can push your ranking right to the bottom that will automatically put you out of contention for a top 10 finish.”
