2020 F3F WC postponed to 2021

Following the cancellation of all Continental and World Championships 2020 by CIAM and FAI, France has transmitted to CIAM the wish to simply shift F3F World Champs to 2021 in the same period of the year.

The proposal is therefore to start the 5th F3F World Championships on Sunday 3rd of October 2021 with the opening ceremony and end the World Champs on Saturday 9th of October 2021 with the closing ceremony.

We have received the informal feedback that this request has been positively decided by CIAM bureau, but we have not yet received the written and formal confirmation. But as of today, we consider this proposal for granted and teams from all over the world may start their planning towards the 5th F3F World Championships beginning of October 2021 in Limoux, south of France on the well known slopes of Saint Ferriol, Excueillens and Laurac.

We will update the Home Page of the World Champs in the coming weeks.

Next F3F World championship will be from the 4th to the 10th of October 2020 !

The French Aeromodeling Federation (FFAM) invites all active or associated members of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) to participate with a team in the 5th FAI World Championship for the Slope Soaring Model Aircraft Class F3F.
