Italian Open Hang Gliding Championship 2008

Friday 11 April, 2008

This year the Bergamo Hang gliding Trophy (Trofeo Internazionale dell’Isola) has become the Italian Open Hang Gliding Championship, and is open to foreign pilots.

The event will take place from 30 April to 4 May in Palazzago, near Bergamo.

Pilots who have never had the chance to fly over the Orobic Prealps should try this nice flying area.

Landscape varies from plains to mountains, from alpine valleys to milder hills. You can easily fly over Lecco Lake to the west and try to reach Brescia towards east.
