Great Britain goes for European and World gold

2010 or the year when Great Britain could produce a World and European Champion in the sport of aerobatics for the first time ever.

This summer, teams rigorous selected during 2009 and 2010 by the British Aerobatic Association will compete in the European and World Advanced Aerobatic Championships.

The Unlimited European championships are to be held in the Czech Republic in September. The Unlimited Team is formed by Tom Cassells, British Champion Gerald Cooper, Nick Onn, Richard Pickin and ex-World Champion Eric Vazeille.

The Championships run from the 2nd until the 12th September and attract teams from across Europe, including the French World Champions.

The World Advanced Aerobatic Championships run from the 5th of August until the 15th in Radom, Poland.

The British Advanced Team is British Advanced Champion Alan Cassidy MBE, Chairman of the BAeA, Marco Kalweit, Nick Richards, Cas Smith, Paul Tomlinson and Nick Wakefield.

Both teams can be seen at various UK competitions in the run up to the championships, including the British National Championships at Sywell, near Northampton, on the 15th – 18th July.

Competing on the global stage requires not only exceptional flying skills, but also huge personal dedication by each pilot, including significant commitment of personal time, money and energy to mastering the sport.

All we can do is to wish them luck and to be there and support the championships.
