WPRS and ‘de-sanctioned’ competitions

ElPenon2

2015 and 2016 have seen a number of Category 2 competitions appearing on the FAI calendar and then disappearing, sometimes just before the competition takes part, because they are ‘de-sanctioned’ on the request of the organizing NAC or by FAI (the NAC being suspended).

CIVL Bureau believes that in such cases pilots should not be penalized. Hence, CIVL Bureau has decided that since it was elected, last February 21st, all competitions that appeared on the FAI calendar at one time would be taken in account for CIVL World Pilot Ranking System (WPRS), whether the competition was sanctioned or not when it took part.

The Bureau decision takes effect immediately but will have to be confirmed or rejected by the coming plenary.
