Organisers say:

Our objective is to provide a fantastic event that sets new standards for Microlight and Paramotor competitions. Our guiding principles are:

  • Plenty of tasks that are challenging but not unnecessarily complex
    Fast and efficient scoring
    Good social atmosphere and high levels of spectator engagement
    Efficient communication between microlight and paramotor groups
    Reliable facilities and infrastructure

We have an excellent location for this competition, with plenty of open space and beautiful countryside for flying in.
