Welcome to CIVA News!

This website is dedicated to news and information about CIVA aerobatic championships, and will serve as the primary channel within our worldwide aerobatic community to everyone with an interest in aerobatics. Here you will find a broad range of news about national and domestic events of interest to aerobatic pilots and judges, and for organisers all the information you need to establish and run aerobatic competitions in accordance with current FAI / CIVA standards.

CIVA - the Commission Internationale do Voltige Areinne - is a part of FAI, the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, and our official website with regulatory documents and the formal FAI championship calendar remains at www.fai.org/aerobatics. With CIVA News however we can react more swiftly and step down closer to everyone in the sport to exchange news and views on many everyday matters.

Keeping up to date

Our aim is to provide forward information and good quality images for everyone with an interest in aerobatic competition flying. For this however we do need your help, so please make sure that your aerobatic club or NAC sends us details of all competitions that are open to pilots and/or judges from other countries and we’ll add them to the International Calendar of Events so that they get the widest circulation possible.

We are always looking for photos of exciting or important aerobatic moments to use as page headers or in linked articles. Please use the Contact Us email system here to send us your hi-res images and we’ll use whatever we can. Of course if you see anything that needs an update or a change then let us know and we’ll attend to it right away.

New photos please!
