The Super Paragliding Testival 2022 is expected to welcome 3,000 pilots to Kössen in the Austrian Tyrol this weekend (26-29 May 2022) for a four-day festival of paragliding and testing gear.
Organiser Sepp Himberger said: “With over 3,000 pilots and more than 7,500 flights during past Super Paragliding Testivals the event undoubtedly enjoys a reputation in the international paragliding scene as one of the world’s largest air sports events.”
