Priority for Iceland pilots changed to *MARCH 15th* ! - 2017-02-22 09:29

The priority for Iceland pilots have been changed to March 15th (was April 15th)

This is to give more time for pilots on waiting-list to prepare, buy flight tickets and arrange transport and accommodation.

As of today there are 23 Icelandic pilots registered.
If that will be the final number then 7 pilots on the waiting-list will be added to the competition.
But sometimes pilots cannot attend even they plan to (applies to both Icelandic and visiting pilots), so the final number is not 100% clear.
Normally this means a few more places might become available :-)

Further places available April 15th for visiting pilots - 2017-01-06 05:05

Today (January 6th) we have reached the level of 20 visiting pilots (and 16 Icelandic pilots) total 36 competitors.
To preserve 30 places for Iceland pilots until April 15th all further registrations of visiting pilots will show as "Waiting list".
On April 15th remaining places not used by Icelanders will be allocated to the waiting list pilots in first come first served order.
Currently there are 16 Icelandic pilots registered, so at current registration level there is likely to be 10 additional places.
Also there might be cases of visiting pilots that cannot come, with even more additional places for waiting list pilots.
So PLEASE register even this level has been reached as more places will be available!
