Paragliding Championship now open for entries
The 15th FAI European Paragliding Championship Montalegre, Portugal is on it’s way.
The paragliding championship takes place between the 16th and 28th of July 2018, held in the north of Portugal. With high mountains and open valleys, surrounded by vast plains to several directions, the place is a perfect and secure for cross-country flights. Previous pilots have attained triangulations of up to 100km in previous years.
Climbs of over 3000 meters can be reached depending of the weather conditions and Airtribue states that the area is generally easy to fly.
Landing spots don’t seem to be an issue with the Portuguese living up to their friendly reputation. Did i mention the great wine?!
Registration opened today and will finish on April 16, 2018. A maximum of 200 pilots are required. So far 13 keen pilots have signed up already (and counting!) – looks like spaces are filling up quickly.
