Update for WAAC and EAC

Published: 18th Jun 2021 by Nick Buckenham

We regret to confirm that the situation regarding WAAC and EAC in the Czech Republic this year remains unresolved. Despite a long series of exchanges over many months between FAI, the CIVA Bureau and the President of the Czech Aero Club, the NAC has so far failed to sign the FAI Organiser Agreements and together we have not reached a final solution.

In parallel with this complex situation the Bureau of CIVA has been vigorously pursuing alternative solutions, among them some clearly able to provide the structure we need. It is not yet time to provide details, but we are now confident that both WAAC and EAC will be able to run this year to the same or a similar timetable in an adjacent country, and of course with full Category-1 status.

Entry moneys already committed are safe and will shortly be returned to each competitor so that, when the final details are published in a few days, they will be able to refocus with the new organiser.

Further news will be circulated as soon as we are able.
