Martin Haerri new Swiss hang gliding champion

Sunday 18 May, 2008

The International Swiss Hang Gliding Championships was held in Stans near Lucerne, Switzerland over the weekend of 8-12 May 2008.

With a mind to using the event as a warm-up to the 2008 European Championship (which will be held in Greifenburg, Austria, in early June) the organisation went for quick, entertaining, and challenging tasks, with a special focus on the long, final glide. One task was cancelled due to rain.

The overall winnner in the Flexwing category was Primoz Crigar (SL, Aeros Combat), followed by Christian Ciech (IT, Icaro Laminar) and Alex Pioner (IT, Icaro Laminar).

Martin Haerri was the first Swiss pilot in this class.

In the Rigid class, the overall results were:

1: Jacques Bott (FR, Atos VR)
2: Thierry Parcellier (FR, Atos VR)
3: Markus Fiechter (CH, Atos VR)
