FAI Environmental Commission Newsletter - April 2015

The original challenge was to provide the basics for establishing a code, a presence on the FAI website and setting up standards for air sports environmentally friendly activities.

When these tasks were completed, one might think that EnvC just has to wait for some opportunities to arise to speak of birds and flowers alongside our beautiful flying sites. It may not be the case.

FAI Sailplane Grand Prix news January 2015

FAI-Sailplane-Grand-Prix-2015-RSAThe first FAI Sailplane Grand Prix event of 2015 at Worcester in the Cape Mountains of South Africa produced some spectacular races. The fastest race speed was 189.9 Kilometres per hour by Laurens Goudriaan of South Africa during race 4 with a fantastic flight around 475 kilometres, even the slowest winning race speed was 138 kilometres per hour. The contest was a close match with a battle for first place between Laurens and Uli Schwenck of Germany but Laurens last two day wins clinched the first place and this top pair blew away the opposition with their consistent and very fast flying. The race location at Worcester has proved itself to have a great potential as a Grand Prix site and I am sure there are many pilots who will be keen to fly the next event there.
