History of Rally Flying

The Sport of Rally Flying is steeped in a rich history. We would like to collect as much of this history in terms of visuals and pictures to share on the website.

Budget Permitting it is the intention of South African Power Flying Association to produce a hard cover coffee table book to showcase the History of Rally Flying Internationally.

In order to produce this we will require the following input from each country:

  • Information + Hi Res Pictures featuring the highlights of Rally Flying from each country.
  • Information + Hi Res Pictures highlighting each of the 21 Previous World Rally Flying Championships with participants and Winners.

All info can be emailed to info@wrfc2022.com
