Dag Eckhoff, in Memoriam
By Horace Hagen
Dag was involved with R/C helicopters starting in the early 1980s developing national competitions in Norway as well as other Nordic countries. He joined the FAI F3C subcommittee in 1992 and became one of the most active members. As F3C S/C chairman I always considered Dag as my right hand man in all matters F3C and later in F3N.
Dag served twelve times as F3C judge at continental and world F3C championships between 1996 and 2011. He served as a member of the FAI Jury at eight FAI F3C continental and world championships and as president of the FAI Jury at three FAI F3CN championships. Dag also served three times as the Norwegian delegate to the FAI CIAM.
In 2011 Dag took over as chairman of the F3CN subcommittee and served until 2017, he then stepped down due to health problems.
In 2016 Dag received the FAI gold medal for his many achievements. On January 7, 2020 Dag passed away.
Dag, rest in peace.
