World Aerobatic Championships Wraps Up In Sherman-Denison

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- The World Aerobatic Championships wrapped up at the North Texas Regional Airport.

The closing banquet was held on Saturday night in Denison, and results showed French pilots taking the top spots.  The overall winner was Francois Le Vot with a nearly 78-percent score.

Two other French pilots, Olivier Masurel and Francois Rallet, also placed in the top ten, to give the French the team win. The top woman in the competition was Aude Lemordant, also from France.

The American team was second, followed by Russia. Rain cancelled about half of the 10-day competition, with pilots having to settle for two or three flights, instead of four. Nearly 60 pilots took part.

The contest takes place every two years and the next time will be in Slovakia.
