Pilot selection for the coming Paragliding World championships in Sopot, Bulgaria, came to an end. 150 pilots from 39 countries should participate.

FAME, the FAI Sports Marketing and Events Company, FAME, the FAI Sports Marketing and Events Company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CIVL. Both will to create project teams, with financial backing, to facilitate the creation and presentation of hang gliding and aerobatic events.

Important and successful lobbying was done for FAI to improve its financial organization. Commissions will have a much better access to their accounts, now separate, hence will know at anytime where they stand. CIVL will test/spearhead the new organisation.
