New indoor schedule for winter 2008-2009

A new schedule will be flown in the hardest F3P-A class during winter 2008-2009 and starting from InSkaala event in Pietarsaari on 22.11.2008.

In Finland we will not be using the official FAI F3P schedule, instead we will follow the example of the Dutch and use their schedule. The reason for this is that the new FAI F3P schedule is unsuited for halls with typical ceiling heights. The Dutch program is based on the FAI schedule, only the maneuvres requiring a lot of height have been replaced.

NOTE! There are no changes to Sport, Advanced and Aeromusicals classes!

All indoor schedules, including the new one can be found from: 

F3A Nordic Championships 2009, Grenaa Denmark

The date for the Nordic Championships has been confirmed for July 22th-26th 2009.
