2017 World Aerobatic Championships.

Am I right in saying that there are no women competing in the current championships? If that is the case, why?

Seems unlikely, and very sad if true. In the last championship Aude Lemordant came 6th overall!

I just hope that it's not due to women being unable to get sponsorship.

Maybe Tracey Curtis-Taylor could attempt take part. She seems to be able to extract sponsorship out of lots of gullible people!

I've heard that Tracey Curtis-Taylor won the last championship.

I'm off to try and find out elsewhere, I'll let you know if I get an answer.

Sad but true... she swept down to watch nearby whales, became disorientated, and three minutes later clinched the title.

That might explain the passenger.
