Kevin Vile, long time Taumarunui President, and Flying NZ Executive member is delighted to accept his Certificate and FAI Air Sports Medal from Robert Henderson an Executive Director of the Federation Aeronautique International Executive Board.
The Fédération Aéronautique Internationale Air Sports Medal
This medal was established by the FAI Council for the 100th anniversary of Lilienthal's first flights. It may be awarded, at any time, to individuals or groups for outstanding services in connection with air sport activities like work in FAI commissions, organising World and Continental Championships, training and educating new pilots, or for promoting aviation in general, especially with regard to young people.
Four awards were made at the 2017 Flying NZ Conference dinner.
