FAI Awards Ceremony to take place online on 2 December 2020

The traditional FAI Awards Ceremony has been moved online and converted into an Awards Announcement due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event will be broadcast on Wednesday 2 December 2020 at 19:00 UTC on the FAI General Conference event website and on the FAI Youtube Channel.

This year, 45 awardees will be honoured with FAI diplomas or medals for their outstanding contributions spanning the wide variety of the activities, sports and disciplines within FAI. The names of the recipients will be announced in the video, together with a description of their achievements.

FAI President Bob Henderson said: “I invite everyone from all around the world to tune in with us to celebrate the people who played a major part in the world of air sports and beyond. The FAI Awards Ceremony is such an important fixture in our calendar that we were determined to organise it despite the pandemic. In a sense, it has been a chance to be creative and to present the FAI Awards in a fresh way.”

The FAI Awards Ceremony is part of the 114th FAI General Conference, which will also be held online this year.
