New Mission and Vision for FAI

FAI Mission VisionAfter extensive consultation with the Federation’s stakeholders, FAI adopted new Mission and Vision statements to help prioritise strategies and move steadily towards its objectives and goals.

The time has now come to bring them out to the FAI community, for common and regular use.

The Mission Statement as appearing below, describes the reason for the FAI existence, and shall serve as an overall guide to priorities, actions and responsibilities.

"FAI - the global organisation for the promotion of air sports and recreational flying"

The Vision Statement outlines the clear and inspirational long-term desired change resulting from the Federation’s work:

“A world where safe participation in air sports and recreational flying
is available to everyone at reasonable cost”

Created for constant and regular communication, these statements are clear, concise, forceful and with strong relevance to “why the FAI is here”.  In that sense, they complete and summarise the FAI objectives as appearing in the Statutes.  

The statements were approved at the FAI Executive Board meeting in May 2014, following several discussions and presentations at various meetings, including the meetings of the NAC Active Presidents and the Air Sports Commission Presidents in 2013 and 2014.

 The Mission and Vision statements, together with the list of FAI’s essential activities, were presented by Executive Director Otto Lagarhus at the FAI 108th General Conference in Pattaya, Thailand, in October 2014.
