Becoming the first.

Preliminary bulletin “0” has officially become the number one.

On the 6th of December a full preliminary approval for the European Championships for Space Models was approved by delegates of FAI bureau meeting in its headquarters in Lausanne (Switzerland)

Hopeful host countries for the European and world level competitions in different aeronautical disciplines were reviewed at the meeting, including the Ukrainian bid by Spacemodelling Federation of Ukraine and its general partner Noosphere.

After a quick presentation showing outlining all that the Ukrainian team has done to prepare for the event, members of the FAI meeting had no doubt that as one of the first spacefaring countries in the world, Ukraine would provide a world-class event for European rocketry enthusiasts in one of the safest and most beautiful cities in Europe.

All parties were able to formally agree on many items including:
The 2015 FAI European Championships for Space Models will take place in Lviv, 21-28 of August.
The seniors and juniors will launch their models (S1A, S1B, S3A, S4A, S5B, S5C, S6A, S7, S8D, S8E/P, S9A ) on the airfield in 6 km from downtown Lviv
The airfield will be equipped according to the FAI rules.
All plans to accommodate participants will be carefully planned out for their comfort and convenience.

People also got another exciting glimpse of the new CupNavigator scoring system at the meeting. It was developed by Noosphere especially for the Spacemodelling Federation of Ukraine to simplify the paperwork and applications and also to record and publish competition results in real time.
