Gliders : PWCA decision regarding 2012 Tour

The PWCA Committee has voted to introduce SERIAL CLASS for a temporary period including the complete 2012 World Cup Tour and/or until such time as a COMPETITION CLASS is established.
All events flown during 2012 as well as Superfinal 2011 in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, will be flown on SERIAL CLASS gliders.

Notwithstanding the fact that the World Cup has an enviable safety record, the PWCA continues to develop mechanisms to improve all aspects within the competition environment and holds the firm belief that safety in competition is the result of combined factors and not simply the type or class of glider flown.

A review of this decision will take place during the 2012 PWCA General Assembly in Macedonia in August 2012.
