3D Masters 2012 will be held in Venlo, the Netherlands on the 13th, 14th and 15th July. After pioneering the use of the Trafficport site in 2011, 3D Masters will be using the same location again. This microlight flying field has an 880 metre runway orientated exactly East-West, meaning that competition pilots face North, avoiding sun-glare. Trafficport is situated adjacent to the E67 roadway, providing easy and convenient communications from all over Europe, sits plumb on the Dutch/German border and is within easy reach distance for International Airports in Amsterdam, Cologne, Dusseldorf, and Paris. Accommodation too is available at all levels, with campsites, bungalow parks, bed-and breakfast and hotels all readily available within the town and easy reach of the flying field.The hosts will be the Jupiter Flying Club, the same club who hosted the very successful 2010 and 2011 3D Masters events. Walter Robijns, Chairman of the Jupiter Club said “The entire Jupiter Club has found the hosting of 3D Masters a very exciting and entertaining experience. While it was hard work all round, we are delighted to be hosts to the biggest 3D Competition and the most talented 3D stars in the World. The atmosphere at 3D Masters is electric, and there has been unanimous support for hosting the event again in 2012.”A spokesperson for 3D Masters commented “We were impressed by the commitment and resolve of members of the Jupiter Club. It is no easy task for a relatively small club to host a major world event, and we feel that Jupiter not only met our expectations but exceeded them in many ways. Feedback from 3D Fans, Competitors and Sponsors has been very positive, and so we feel very comfortable with entrusting the 2012 3D Masters to the Jupiter Club”3D Masters 2012 will retain the format of previous years with the 3 disciplines of Set Manoeuvres, Freestyle and Flight to Music ensuring that the winners in the Experts and Masters categories will have truly earned their accolades. The extremely successful Synchro Competition pioneered in 2009 will be repeated, with entry for 2012 open to a larger number of participants, and of course the Demonstration, Evening and Night Flying will again help to create the fantastic atmosphere for which the event has become internationally renowned.
