Reference For Anyone Interested In Sport Aviation Events And Achievements
The Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), the World Air Sports Federation, has just released its 2012 annual report, and made it available for download over the Internet. FAI says the document is meant to be a reference book for all those who are interested in air sports events and the FAI.
The annual report includes an overview of each air sport, lists of competition results, awards and records, photographs and a lot of other useful information.
"To display all the sports and activities of our federation in one single document is an impossible challenge," said FAI President John Grubbström. "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."
A non-governmental and non-profit-making organization founded in 1905, the FAI is the world governing body for air sports and for certifying world aviation and space records.
