PLEASE NOTE THAT IS EVENT IS CANCELLED
Aug.31 2019 : We’ve received three registrations and these three candidates will now form Team Canada F5J. Further info HERE. Thanks
The first F5J World Championship will be in August 2019 in Slovakia. We will conduct a team selection competition this year to select the best pilots to form Team Canada.
Prospective national team members will compete for senior and junior positions 1, 2 and 3. Each team also has the option of taking an alternate pilot to the World Championships. This alternate pilot would stand in for any team member who is unavailable to compete at the WC.
Each team selection process will cover two active flying days (Saturday, Sunday). These days will be consumed as per the contest directors requirements and may (or may not) include 1 or 2 contest days. Weather is the prime factor in determining the event duration. We will strive for 2 day contests.
The schedule is as follows :
|Friday August 31st
|Practice and field set up
|Saturday Sept 1
|Competition day 1
|Sunday Sept 2
|Competition day 2
Contest director : Fabien Gagné
Field : COGG near Barrie (Ontario)
The competition rules will be mostly as per official FAI rules, except that there will be no fly-off (all rounds will count), and approximately 2/3 of the rounds will be 10-minutes tasks, followed by 1/3 rounds that will be 15-minutes tasks. This is to expose pilots to a broad contest experience closer to a world championship.
If 3 or less pilots register in Senior or Junior class (respectively), they will automatically form our national team (and the TS competition may be cancelled).
Registrations are open UNTIL MAY 10.
Pilots registering to the TS must commit in going to the World Championship in Slovakia, in the event they are selected.
Very little financial support will be available from MAAC and from F5J Canada, so pilots should be prepared to self-finance most of their expenses and equipment.
The registration fee is 25$ (you will be contacted). Please register using the following form:
