Welcome to the official website of the 2017 USA F3A team! The 2017 F3A World Championships are being held in Villa Gesell, Argentina from November 3rd until November 12th. The official website for the F3A World Championships is located here.
The 2017 USA F3A World Championship team, callers and team manager - from left to right (top to bottom) are Jason Shulman, Dave Stoddart, Andrew Jesky, Kevin Young, Brett Wickizer, Bryan Hebert, Mark Atwood (TM), Joseph Szczur (Junior) and Don Szczur. Unfortunately due to Brett being hired on as a pilot for PSA Airlines he is unable to go to the World Chamionships and AC Glenn (who is the alternate) will be taking his place. Not pictured are AC Glenn and his caller Al Glenn - their pictures and bio show up on the "Meet the Team" page.
As most of you know our national organization (AMA) sponsors our FAI Teams but this valuable sponsorship only pays for a small portion of the costs to send a team to a World Championship. Since the team funding only accounts for a small portion of the cost, we really need to rely on our fellow modelers to help us with fundraising to make up for the extra money to defray the costs that our team will incur. Argentina is a long way from the USA and the cost of airfare alone is expensive and then we also have to ship our planes and support equipment over there as well.
