As always, the list/IAC members treat the list as "US only"...
As practically the only aerobatic pilot in Israel, I got used to this.
After all, more than 50% of the aerobatics pilots live in the US.

But, when it comes to "National (US) team selection by a committee" I 
got to have my own saying here:

This is insane! 

If the US IAC wants American pilots competing in the World's under 
another country's name, then using a comittee would be the best 
way to achive this ... 

In fact, I'm pretty sure I'll help to "arrange" for a US local 
competition to choose the US-pilots "Israel" aerobatics team to 
circumvent such a committee. Hopefully such "unoffical US team" in 
Isralli disguise would perform better than the "official US team" 
making a mockery of the US IAC choice.

Don't do it.
