Notice of Team Selection for the 2022 FAI – F3K World Championship
Attention to all F3K pilots. This is an invitation to express your interest in representing Canada at the next F3K World Championship in Slovakia in 2022 at a yet to be determined date by the FAI (likely in August). There is limited financial support from MAAC, so interested individuals are expected to assume the most part of their expenses, and have a sufficient number of models for a world championship event. If there are more than 3 registrations in a class (Senior or Junior), the team trial competition documented herein will select the best candidates based on results from a two-day competition. With three or fewer registrations, the team will be formed with those candidates without a need to compete at the team trial. Please register only if you are sure going to the Team Trial and seriously considering going the WC. Exceptionally, with more than 3 registrants, and only if the sanitary conditions prove impractical to run the Team Trial event, the MAAC Sailplane Committee reserves the right to cancel the event and designate the pilots that will form the team from the list of registered pilots. In case fewer than 3 pilots register in a class, the Committee also reserves the right to reach out to the membership to fill in the vacancies.
Registrations are open now until January 16, 2022, 23:30 EST.
