New 2012 FAI Annual Report just out !

2012 FAI Annual Report coverThe FAI has released a new publication, the 2012 FAI Annual Report, designed to present the most notable achievements, developments, facts and challenges of the past year. It is meant to be a reference book for all those who are interested in air sports events and the FAI.

It includes an overview of each air sport, lists of competition results, awards and records, photographs and a lot of other useful information.

FAI President John Grubbström stated, "To display all the sports and activities of our federation in one single document is an impossible challenge. Our ambition is to showcase the extraordinary diversity and plurality of the FAI and the air sports community. Furthermore this new all-embracing format enables newcomers, volunteers, air sports participants and fans to quickly discover our federation or keep updated with some of our most significant activities and events.

When reading the report you will see that 2012 has been a rich and eventful year, whether it be for the various performances and events (from Baumgartner’s parachuting records to the victory of Mamistov at the 18th FAI European Aerobatic Championships to name a few) or for the many activities and initiatives within the FAI Head Office and Commissions."
