The FAI asked for new competition formats
The FAI has some time ago addressed all Air Sports Commissions and asked for new competition formats that fulfil the requirements of World Games and similar FAI First Category Events.
Most important is instant scoring and good visibility to the spectators. All freefall disciplines fail to meet this standard. They cannot be watched from the ground and instant scoring is not easy.
The only parachuting discipline that has been included in recent World Games has been Canopy Piloting. Accuracy Landing would also be suitable and especially CF to me seems also eligible. Therefore I have had some brain storming with CF people from around the world and brought my first ideas to the competitors meeting after the CF World cup and European Championships in Saarlouis where some members of the IPC CF Committee discussed them with the competitors.
Using that input and the ideas from the early Cumulus Conventions I made a rule set for a CF6 Special Event that we want to test at our CF camp in Gransee this May. If we can develop this new competition format and the crEUw-dogs like it I will take it back to the IPC CF Committee and present it to the next IPC Plenary for approval. After that it can bee presented to the FAI. If they also like it we have a good chance to get CF included in the World Games. These Games are the highest competition level for non Olympic sports and are recognised as an FAI First Category Event like FAI World Championships.
