IMG_2975The FAI, via the AeCI, has announced that the Study Centre for Alpine Soaring Museum has been recognised as a “Recommended FAI Museum”. FAI Secretary General Susanne Schoedel and Director of Sport and Marketing Markus Haggeney were much impressed during their visit to ACAO last June by the quantity of fascinating historic documents which they found in the museum so they decided to make an application.

During the course of the 109th FAI General Conference, held in Rotterdam last September, the delegates decided it was important to recognise the Study Centre Museum. Also recognised were the Irish Aviation Foundation, the Francisco Sarabia Museum Monument (Mexico) and the Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum (USA).
