The South African F3K and F5J teams will participate in the World Championships 2019 in Hungary during July and August.

2019 World Championship

The Hand Launch Gliders or Discus Launch Gliders have a full team:

3 Senior Pilots: Alan Smith, Craig Goodrum, Mike Vos

Team Manager: Brett Lewis

3 Junior Pilots: Aldo Vos, Oliver Booysen, James Steele

Team Manager: Theo Wolhuter

For the F5J Team (or electric launch gliders) it will be 1 pilot: Mike Vos and Team Manager: Jan Sime.

The World Championship expenses (flights & accommodation)and planes must be funded by the team self and this puts a huge burden on the team members.

All funds we can raise for to support the South African team will be used to support the team and give ongoing feedback to our supporters and for business sponsors we will promote your brand in our media campaigns and communication.

Your contribution will help the team to focus on preparation, training and the World Championship performance.

Our primary goal is to raise $1000 per Pilot/Team Manager.  That will only cover Flights and part of the accommodation. The Next goal would be to cover entry fees and licence fees for about $500 per pilot and then we will work towards the sponsorship of the planes the pilots bought for the World Championship at $600 per plane and every pilot (6 for F3K) can enrol 5 planes for the World Championship and $1200 per plane for F5J where we currently have 1 pilot entered for the World Championships.
