FAI World Air Games

The FAI World Air Games are under way in Dubai, UAE with the closing ceremony scheduled for Saturday 12th December. BMAA members are involved in three events:

Microlight trikes - see the latest scores here. The British Team are performing really well with David Broom in gold medal position, Rees Keene in second and Chris Saysell in fourth. With two more races to go, the competitors will be able to drop their worst 2 scores with the rest counting towards the overall result. Hopes are high for at least one medal, maybe more.

Microlight autogyros - see the latest scores here. It's early days and anything can happen in the next two races. Both Steve Boxall and Tony Love scored badly in race 3, the first race to take place at the Palm, Dubai as races 1 and 2 had taken place in the desert. They will have two more chances to post high scores and then be able to delete their scores from race 3. 

Paramotors - see the scores here. The competition has suffered due to organisational problems and then very strong winds. After two races Phil Jennings is 19th overall and Mark Morgan 23. There's still time to turn it around and fight for a medal later in the week.

For more information, see the World Air Games website at www.wagdubai.ae. For Facebook users, many of the competitors are contributing to the GBMicroWAG2015 page.
