The Bright Open 2020 paragliding competition will take place from 8-14 February 2020.
It is an Australian Nationals AAA Sanctioned, FAI Category 2 event, and is also a test event for the forthcoming FAI Cat. 1 Asian Oceanic Continental Championships. It will also be running parallel with the Gundowring Open.
This year’s event will be organised by Wally Arcidiacono in conjunction with the Australian Paragliding Squad, and any profits made will be directed back to the Squad to help with training and coaching. Mentoring will also be available – contact Wally in advance to arrange this.
The competition is open to all pilots with a minimum of an Australian PG 4 rating or equivalent, and all pilots must be members of the Hang Gliding Federation of Australia for the duration of the event. Overseas visiting pilots to Australia will need to obtain a Visiting Pilot Membership.
All pilots must carry and use their own personal tracking device.
