Ferenc Tóth wins Glider Aerobatic Champs for 5th time
Hungarian Wizz Air pilot Ferenc Tóth received the gold medal, becoming world champion for the fifth time at this yearʼs FAI World Glider Aerobatic Championships in the Czech Republic.
Tóth placed first in the competition for the fourth consecutive time. Three other pilots of Wizz Air also took part, including fellow Hungarian János Szilágyi, who came in 4th. The 10-day contest featured 22 glider pilots competing against each other in the skies above Zbraslavice.
"At Wizz Air we are proud of our colleagues who represent the elite of their professions and provide excellent services to their passengers," commented András Radó, Wizz Airʼs corporate communications manager.
Tóth won his first glider race in 2000, becoming world champion for the first time three years later, and winning a dozen international competitions since his debut.
