To our fellow flyers:
The Canadian Precision Aerobatics Team will once again represent Canada in the upcoming World F3A Championships in Dubendorf, Switzerland, during August of 2015. We are appealing to our fellow members in MAAC affiliated model clubs for financial support.
Canada has a reputation of sending our best F3A flyers in the country to these championships and this year will be no exception. Flying electric powered, state of the art precision aerobatic planes will be Chad Northeast from Calgary, Alberta, Michi Akimoto from Victoria, British
Columbia, Dave Reaville from Victoria, British Columbia, and our Junior member, Ethan Chariandy of Mississauga, Ontario. For further information about our team as they prepare to fly with the best pilots in the world, please check these web sites:

Sending a team to a major event such as the World Championships requires a committed group of people with solid financial backing. We not only rely on your generous donations but on fundraising and other means to cover expenses. These costs can be substantial as entry fees alone will be approximately $1000 for each pilot and with air travel, accommodation, food, plane shipping, car rentals, team uniforms. etc., the expense for each competitor quickly reaches the $5,000 mark and more.
As the F3A Team Manager for 2015, I am asking for a monetary donation from your club or individual membership. The amount is totally up to each club or individual as any funds put towards our cause will be greatly appreciated.
Team Donations can be made in the form of a cheque payable to me, the team manager. We would appreciate receiving any donation before June 1st, 2015 so we can officially recognize and thank you for the generous support.

Please be sure to clearly identify yourself or your club’s name with address and contact information.
Thank you for your consideration.
