Interview with Hans Akerstedt, Recipient of the 2015 FAI Gold Air Medal
It has been awarded this year to Hans Akerstedt from Sweden (pictured left signing the FAI Gold Book) for his active role in the progress of aeronautics through his involvement and dedication to Ballooning. The medal was presented to him at the 2015 FAI Awards Ceremony of the 109th FAI General Conference in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Akerstedt, 73, is one of the world's greatest specialists on aviation and ballooning history. His outstanding technical and historical knowledge is completed by a solid aviation background as a balloonist, a pilot for the Swedish Air Force and an SAS captain. His devotion to ballooning is exceptional as he has been volunteering within the FAI Ballooning Commission (CIA) for the last 42 years, holding several positions from Delegate to Subcommittee Chairman and Vice President. He has given his name to the Akerstedt formulas that he developed for the scoring and ranking of ballooning competitions. He is also well known for creating and updating the List of Notable Performances and Achievements whose aim is to save for the future reliable references to flights or activities. Considered as an authority by the ballooning community, he is often involved in technical assessment and record ratification for which his opinion is highly regarded. Furthermore, his activities also include competitions: he participated in the organisation of the 1st FAI European Ballooning Championship in Skovde, Sweden in 1976 and the fourth World Hot Air Ballooning Championship in Sweden in 1979. He competed at the World Hot Air Balloon Championship in 1973 and seven times in the Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett between 1984 and 2003. Hans Akerstedt within the FAI Ballooning Commission: Active since 1974 Delegate for Sweden - 42 years Secretary - 6 years, 1982-1987 1st Vice President - 23 years, 1988 - 2015, except 5 years when he was 2nd and 3rd Vice President Acting President: 1 year, 1998 What keeps your passion for ballooning activities alive? Hans Akerstedt: Ballooning is a very friendly sport. I meet old friends all over the world.
