Judges selected by the CIVA Judging Sub-Committee for the World Advanced Glider Aerobatic Championships and European Glider Aerobatic Championships in Finland in July have been ratified by the Bureau of CIVA. Chief Judge of the event will be Philippe Kuechler of Switzerland. Judges are LG Arvidsson (SWE), Stanislav Bajzik (CZE), Timo Bartholdi (FIN), Nick Buckenham (GBR), John Gaillard (RSA), Jan Gawecki (POL), Stephan Hau (GER), Peter Lambert (AUT), Remy Louvel (FRA), and Alexey Pimenov (RUS). This year's event will be the first Advanced Glider Aerobatic Championships in CIVA's history as rules for this category were recently adopted in hopes of attracting more glider pilots to aerobatic competition. The organizers have reported an excellent response and expect approximately 60 pilots to participate.
