Guide to Championship Organisation updated

Published: 21st Feb 2023 by Nick Buckenham

We all know that running an FAI aerobatic championship is a major task, so having a “How to do it” textbook must be an enormous help. In 2014 we introduced the first CIVA Guide to Championship Organisation (the “GCO”) to provide an extensive record of experience and best-practice from all events since the very first in 1960 at Bratislava – a date now 63 years back in our history.

The GCO is now at issue 5, with over 60 pages of detailed info explaining the right way to get the enormous range of activities and responsibilities at an aerobatic championship set up and subsequently managed. This year there’s new material regarding safety, a vital part of everything we do, and a broad range of additions and updates on other topics to bring the latest thinking and expertise to you all.

The 2023 GCO can be downloaded from the CIVA Document Store at https://www.civanews.com/the-civa-document-store/

Are you hosting an aerobatic event?

Our aim is to provide forward information for everyone with an interest in aerobatic competition flying.

For this however we do need your help, so please make sure that your Aerobatic Club or National Airsport Control sends us details of all competitions that are open to pilots and/or judges from other countries and we’ll add them to our Championship Calendar so that they get the widest circulation possible.

Showcase your aerobatic photos

We are always looking for photos and videos of exciting or important aerobatic moments to use as page headers or in linked articles. Simply click on the button and submit your hi-res images or videos and we’ll use whatever we can.

Of course, if you see anything else that needs an update or a change then let us know by email - contact@civa-news.com - and we’ll attend to it right away.
