    Dear Cross Country

    I afraid of suspending for open class glider at FAI events. In Japan, national comp. committee closed open class competition, too.
    I think major origins are from pilots. OZONE created very nice glider R10 in 2010. It was very very nice, and pilots got huge success with R10. The reason was only with excellent performance of R10. But unfortunately pilots are under illusion that he or she could become a great pilot. Pilots are making merry too much. And then destroy competition system.
    My personal opinion from many years ago is that it is better to limit certified glider (now it is EN-D) at FAI CAT1/2 event. I think PWC must accept open class because they are a mafia with manufacture for comp. glider and major comp. pilots.

    Sincerely
