Reportage: Alta Fedeltà Formula FANI 21018 Bari – Race of model aircraft reduced to scale
On the flight field of the C.A.B. today the first Fani Reproductions Race Formula, valid for the 2018 championship, took place today. Manufacturers and Pilots were confronted by sport presenting to the Judges beautiful reproductions, full of surprising details and giving rise to evocative performances in flight.
Impeccable and efficient organization organized by the friends of the Barese Aircraft Club, chaired by the stainless Prof. Francesco Posa, to whom we offer our most vivid thanks. The ranking: Mario Ieffa (Fly Club Matteo Cristalli ASD) in first place with Piper PA 22 Tri Pacer; in second place Carlo De Gregorio (Fly Club Matteo Cristalli ASD) with Piper PA 36; third place is Paolo Cricenti (Club Fata Morgana – Vibo Valentia) with Ansaldo SVA.
In fourth place the spectacular Bleriot XI by Dario Balzano of C.A.B. which, despite obtaining a high evaluation in the “static” sector, was penalized in the dynamic one by the objective difficulties of piloting deriving from the peculiar construction features (without aileron), which prevented the execution of the maneuvers envisaged by the regulation.
Relevant Klemm made and brought in flight by Aldo Luparelli. To all the participants a heartfelt thanks from the FANI ASD. Appointment on 6 October at C.S.I. of Alessandria for the second race.
