WAAC 2020 Postponed

Team members were set to compete at the 14th World Advanced Aerobatic Championships in Hosin, Czech Republic, in August. On May 6, 2020, CIVA President Nick Buckenham announced that the 2020 World Advanced Aerobatic Championships will be postponed until 2021. Originally scheduled to be held in the Czech Republic, the coronavirus pandemic has caused the cancellation or postponement of most FAI air sports events this year including aerobatic championships. The 2021 WAAC will most likely be held in the Czech Republic and additional details will be provided by the organizers in the near future.
