All the international news about aerobatic sport.
The first Danubia Cup for powered and glider aircraft was held this year, having been organized by the Hungarian Aeronautical Association and the Hungarian Aerobatic Club.
The Danubia Cup came about after the 1st Central European Aerobatic Meeting last year, where the idea of creating a Central European Open Aerobatic Championship series was proposed. Power glider pilots from different Central European countries would compete among each other for a single title, the Danuba Cup, and the winning country could use the Cup as proof of a national championship, since it is under CIVA and approved as a second-class event by the FAI.
From July 4th - 7th, the National Aerobatic Championship was held in the United Kingdom at Sywell Aerodrome in the international categories of Advanced and Unlimited in engine aerobatics.
Pilot François Le Vot, member of the l’Armee de l’Air aerobatic team (EAA) took the title of 2013 Champion of France in the Unlimited category held in Moulins.
The wing-walker Performer Jane Wicker and the pilot Charlie Shwenker were killed last Saturday at the Vectren Dayton Air Show according to the Jane Wicker Air Shows official Facebook page.
