Any one of the many MAAA members who
attended and assisted will be the first to
say what a prestigious event the F2 World
Championships was. See our article in
this edition. It’s a real thrill to host world
championships and showcase our beautiful
country. As such, the MAAA is supporting a bid to
host the 2019 F3D Pylon World Championships on
the Sunshine Coast in August 2019.
Another way of showcasing our sport, to both
locals and visitors, is through public museums.
Following submissions from two clubs keen to
establish a permanent public aero modelling
museum, the MAAA would love to hear your
views on the desire for and location of an
MAAA Museum. So keep an eye on your inbox
next month for our online survey. We’d really
appreciate your input and opinion.
Finally, a reminder that it’s time to renew your
membership. Membership fees have been
kept the same as last year. We’ve been able to
achieve this by separating insurance premium
costs from the 2016/17 budget used to calculate
member fees. The 2016/17 insurance will be
in place by next week and will be paid from
the insurance levy account, rather than as a
component of member’s fees as previously
As you’ll see from the great articles in this
edition, we love receiving your stories, photos
and successes for inclusion in Wingspan. So
please send your ideas to me email@example.com
Until next time, have a fun, safe flight.
