SAFA Competitions Comittee Event Sanction Application
CMP-01 Ver: 20210505

Competition organizers wishing to apply for a SAFA sanctioning of their event, need to give the Competitions Committee relevant details through the form provided below. Applications through the previous PDF form are no longer accepted by the Competition Committee.

Please refer to the competition manual in its latest version for the full list of requirements to obtain a competition sanction. The Competition Committee may request further information via email to support an application. The Competition Committee may alter aspects of a competition if there is a clash with other competitions, or for any reason.

The CC may consider any sanction application at any time, but once awarded, sanctions will not be revoked unless there are extenuating circumstances to warrant a change.

If the organiser is seeking an FAI sanction, please provide the category applied for or 'none' if no FAI sanction is sought. NOTE: If the competition is to be CIVL Cat 2, then the competition must be open to international participation. Where a competition receives sanction under the competition manual, the Competitions Committee reserves the right to establish additional conditions that must be satisfied for the sanction to apply. The FAI sanction fee of 1.5x the entry fee is now paid for by SAFA.
Link to the FAI 'local regulations file on your website"
The FAI now requires a document which contains the 'essential' information that a pilot may require to attend your competition. Confusingly, this is known to the FAI as the 'local regulations' which are actually different to what Australian's have called the 'local rules/regulations'. Before the FAI will consider your competition for a Category 2 sanction, this document needs to be present on your website with the appropriate details to suit your competition. A link to a sample document can be found on the SAFA website under Pilot Tools -> Forms and Docs | Competition.

Link to the local rules
To ensure alignment of local rules to the competition manual, competition organisers are required to provide a copy of the local rules at the time of sanctioning. Any amendments to the local rules thereafter require approval by the Competition Committee. Please provide a link to the local rules (e.g. a competition website or a document stored on a cloud drive)
