Joshua Finn qualifies for 2016 F1D Team

Joshua and Hope attended the US F1D Team Selection Finals held at the historic Hangar 1 at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The senior team contenders entered into a stiff competition, and when the dust settled, John Kagan, Brett Sanborn, and Joshua Finn emerged as the top three, qualifying to attend the 2016 World Championship in Slanic Prahova, Romania.

Hope flew several models and performed excellently, drawing high compliments from the participants, but she chose not to make a bid for the team this year.
