Airsport body sends its secretary to Thai event

The Cambodia Airsport Federation (CAF) have accepted an invitation from the president of the Royal Aeronautic Sport of Thailand, Veerayuth Didyasarin, to join the 4th Paramotor Southeast Asia King’s Cup Open, which is being held in Thailand’s Ayutthaya province from August 21-25.

CAF general secretary Ki Piseth has been selected as Cambodia’s representative at the event, which is seen as a tune-up to November’s 4th Asian Beach Games in Phuket.

“This sport is very popular in developing countries because it links well with tourism,” CAF president Teng Peng Sang told the Post. “But our federation is in poor condition and not attracting much participation as [airsport] requires expensive microlight machines and is practised over isolated ground far from the general population. However, we now have a chance to join an international event.

I don’t think about winning because we know our standard is simply too low. With the chance to join this competition, we will just go out to get experience.”
