Two of our best pilots members of the Swiss Team are registered to participate at the WAC. Having no support to bring their planes to America, they are looking for a US plane and so far couldn't locate one. As far I know, the Schweizer (father and son) resigned rather than flying another plane than the one they trained on and I fear the Swiss Team will be almost absent at Oklahoma city if no solution is found.
I forward the message from Peter Gafner. Can anyone help ?
Thanks a lot.
