Q: How am I eligible to participate in the race competitions?
A: You need to hold a valid airline ID for the company you wish to represent. Furthermore, you need to have been employed for at least six months prior to the registration deadline. For necessary equipment, etc. refer to the official WASC Rulebook 2020.

Q: When and how do I pay the registration fee?
A: That depends if you register individually or as a group. The easiest way is to pay the registration fee in advance to your team captain who will then transfer the fee for your whole team and receive the WASC credentials at the registration office.
