After a four years pause of Indoor competitions in Belgium, an FAI F6B competition was announced on short notice - basically to find potential pilots for the World Artistic Games which are supposed to take place in China at the end of this year.

There was a lot of time available, as only 13 of 15 pilots showed up. Normally, the event would have been cancelled at this low number of participants.

Instead of running a practise round for the judges to familiarize themselves with the wide range of various performances, there was only one calibration flight.

The starting order was already pre-determined and unfortunately all consequent rounds where based on the scores achieved. The lowest scoring pilot starts first etc. With this system, there are only very little or slow movements in the ranking, unless there is a technical problem or a crash (very unlikely at this level of competiton and a hall of this size without obstacles).

Therefore I will leave it up to the viewer to do his (or her) own judgement of the flights.

Last flights of the finalists:

Please find attached the complete results of the German Indoor Aerobatics Championship 2011 - and of course pictures of the pilots with their models. 31 pilots were competing for the titles. As it is an Open Championship, we also had top pilots from Austria, Belarus, Czech Republik, Netherlands, Lithuania and Switzerland competing. First time, the pilots had to fly the new FAI F3P-AP schedule for 2012/2013 and for the third time, the top ten pilots in the Expert class were challenged to fly an additional unknown schedule. This kept the competition really exciting until the last flight.

Unfortunately this event was moved from the famous round sports hall into an ordinary gym, but it still was a nice Indoor Meeting for the participating pilots.

For impressions, please scroll to the pictures below.

I am not happy how the Moviemaker in Win7 deals with HD video, but you get at least an idea what it was like:

Once a year Vera & Hans-Georg from the AeroClub Rheidt invite model pilots to their home. As the road they live in is called "Im Paradies" (In Paradise), a name for the event was quickly found. Slope and Electric Flight is possible right outside the house and everybody gets spoiled with food specialities from all over the world. This year we had Austrian & Spanish food.
