FAI World Air Sports Challenge coming to New Zealand

Last month I attended the launch at Parliament of the FAI World Air Sports Challenge to be held at Omarama and Wanaka in the South Island of New Zealand during December 2007. One of the potentially most exciting proposed features is the use of Virtual Eye computer technology from Animation Research Ltd to cover the gliding competitions. This technology is based on that used for Americas Cup coverage and, with the added dimension of altitude, should make for some exciting viewing.
