Open Iquique
Oct 30 – Nov 3 all-day

Open Iquique 2019

Organisers bill the Iquique Open as “the most extreme and driest competition in Chile”. Pilots launch on a hill facing the breeze from the Pacific Ocean, then have the Atacama desert as a huge playground to the east.

Airspace restrictions to the south will be relaxed during the event, to allow a corridor of flight in what is usually the no-go around Diego Aracena airport.

Organisers claim flying is possible 360 days a year, and for up to 10 hours a day in October and November. Expect 2-6m/s thermals and winds of 8-25km/h.
