Ετήσια Γενική Συνέλευση της Παγκόσμιας Οργάνωσης Γενικής Αεροπορίας

Ολοκληρώθηκε με μεγάλη επιτυχία στις 4 Νοεμβρίου 2012η Ετήσια Γενική Συνέλευση της Παγκόσμιας Οργάνωσης Γενικής Αεροπορίας η οποία διεξάχθηκε στο ξενοδοχείο Palm Beach στην Λάρνακα. Η Παγκόσμια Οργάνωση Γενικής Αεροπορίας είναι μέρος της Διεθνούς Αεροναυτικής Ομοσπονδίας (FAI) που εδρεύει στην Λωζάννη της Ελβετίας και έχει στα μητρώα της πέραν των 110 κρατών μελών συμπεριλαμβανομένης και της Κύπρου. Για την χώρα μας θεωρείτε μεγάλη επιτυχία η ανάληψη μια τέτοιας πρωτοβουλίας αφού γίνετε παγκόσμια προβολή της Κύπρου και συνάμα η χώρα μας συμβάλει ενεργά στις παγκόσμιες αθλητικές δραστηριότητες που αφορούν την Γενική Αεροπορία.

Η Συνέλευσης αυτή αποτελεί ορόσημο για την Γενική Αεροπορία και τον Αεραθλητισμό αφού σκοπός της είναι η μελέτη και τροποποίηση υφιστάμενων κανονισμών όπως και η  εισήγηση και ψήφιση νέων κανονισμών που αφορούν τα αθλήματα της Γενικής Αεροπορίας. Η έναρξη της συνάντησης γίνεται με την συνεδρίαση του προεδρείου (Bureau Meeting) και ακολουθούν ολοήμερες συναντήσεις των υποεπιτροπών αγωνισμάτων (Rally flying Subcommittee, Precision Flying Subcommittee and  Meetings) οι οποίες καταγράφουν τις προτάσεις τους. Στην συνέχεια ακολουθεί η Γενική Συνέλευση όπου παρουσιάζονται όλες οι απόψεις και γίνεται η ψηφοφορία.
Την οργάνωση της Συνέλευσης ανέλαβε η Κυπριακή Αεραθλητική Ομοσπονδία και έλαβαν μέρος σαράντα έξι απεσταλμένοι από είκοσι πέντε χώρες οι οποίοι εξέφρασαν την πλήρη ικανοποίηση τους για την άριστη οργάνωση αλλά και για την φιλοξενία της οποίας έτυχαν στην Κύπρο. Σύμφωνα και με τους συμμετέχοντες στην Συνέλευση, παρά τα σοβαρά εμπόδια που αντιμετωπίζει η Γενική Αεροπορία στο νησί μας , η Κύπρος θα μπορούσε να αποτελέσει διεθνές κέντρο Γενικής Αεροπορίας λόγω της γεωγραφικής της θέσης και των καιρικών συνθηκών που επικρατούν στη περιοχή με άμεσα και σημαντικά οικονομικά αλλά και πολιτικά οφέλη προς τον τόπο.

Pre-PWC Drama, Aioleia 2008 and Edessa (Greece)

Pre-PWC Drama, Aioleia 2008

150 contest pilots and a similar number of ?fun? pilots were present at the competition.

Cyprus national team was Christakis Ioannou, Nicos Zeniou and Demetris Antoniou.

The weather conditions were almost perfect, and that allowed for a total of 3 competition days. One day was cancelled due to stormy weather, after the pilots had been flying for 85 minutes. The racing days provided strong thermals and high cloud bases and racing was fast as a result, with more than 45% of the pilots in goal.

The first task was 70km, the second 42km due to a stormy weather forecast, and the third 60 km. One task was cancelled after 85 minutes of racing, and did not count in the results.

The organization was excellent in every respect (pilots? retrieval, rescue team, transportation etc). There were no serious incidents and the ones that did happen are not worth mentioning.
