At CIVA's annual plenary conference in Bucharest last weekend, attended by 22 delegates with 5 further proxy votes from other countries, I am pleased to confirm that approval was secured for a full house of international aerobatic championships in 2017 together with agreement on a wide range of airborne and ground based matters which continue to reinforce CIVA's position as the world's premier sport aerobatic authority.
The international aerobatic championship position for 2017 is now as reported on the 2017 Events page:

This year the CIVA Bureau met in Bucharest on Thursday November 3rd in order to clear the whole of Friday 4th for a comprehensive Strategy meeting, during which a broad review was conducted to clarify how CIVA should plan and work forward over the next few years. During the ensuing plenary meeting a wide range of administrative and organisational matters were resolved, the 2017 championship officials, committee and working group members were nominated and selected, and Hungarian delegate Tamás Ábrányi joined the CIVA Bureau for a two-year term.
CIVA secretaries Hanna Räihä and Zuzana Danihelová are right now working to get the plenary minutes drafted for review, and these will be released for publication along with a Summary of Conclusions on the FAI > CIVA web Documents page as soon as possible. Both the FAI > CIVA and this CIVA News websites will shortly carry the key items required to underpin next year's events, together with an increasing range of general / aerobatic information and updates that are so important to keep everyone up-to-speed.
On behalf of the Bureau of CIVA we all look forward to meeting you at an event somewhere next year.
