The Stubai Cup takes place every year and this year’s theme is Flying Flower Power. “Love is in the air!”, say its organisers.
The three-day event combines an open-air trade show in the landing field, testival, aerial displays and a prize draw. Chrigel Maurer will be giving a not-to-be-missed presentation on the Friday evening so get there in time for that.
Pilot briefings and weather reports will be given daily in the school, and shuttles will run from the landing field to the lifts. Pilots can then free-fly over the snowy arena before landing back at the event site.
All registered pilots are automatically entered in the Fun Cup, whose prizes include an EN-A paraglider.
“We invite all interested private pilots, team pilots and partners to interact with the UP team, test UP products and celebrate.
The exact event schedule will be announced when we have a reliable weather forecast. Events include:
Presentation of the UP MERU and UP Ascent4 by UP developer Franta Pavlousek
Lecture about the Himalayan Adventure Trip by UP-Teampilot and adventurer Boxi
Guided Hike & Fly by Boxi
Musical background at the landing field by UP-DJ Kilian
Of course we will have all UP glider models available in sufficient numbers for extensive on-site testing.
The entire UP Team is looking forward to a social weekend and lots of fun flying together.

The 2018 Kwahu Paragliding Festival is a flagship event for the Ministry of Tourism in Ghana and is now in its 13th year. This year the event will take place in the Odwianuma Mountains from 30 March to 2 April 2018. Flying fee is GHC250.

Wills Wing Wallaby 2018 Demo Days and Fly-In will be held Thursday 5 to Saturday 7 April. There will be a party and dinner on the Saturday night.
Wills Wing say:

The tenth Kössen Paragliding Testival is on from 31 May to 3 June 2018.
Last year saw record crowds at the Austrian event, with 4,300 pilots and 7,500 flights flown over four days. It’s rapidly becoming a must-attend for everyone in the paragliding industry.
The idea of the festival is that pilots can turn up, drop off their passport in exchange for a demo wing, and then use the cablecar to swiftly head up for a test fly. Dedicated pilots can fly lots of wings.
El Yelmo International Festival of the Air is back in Segura de la Sierra, Andalucia, Spain, on 1-3 June 2018. Now in its 19th edition, the free-flying festival promises three days of fun in the Spanish sun, with airshows, a trade fair, conferences, a competition and the International Festival of Air Cinema.
Hundreds of paraglider and paramotor pilots are expected, with 20,000 spectators over the weekend.
The flying site is situated in the north of Portugal with high mountains and open valleys, surrounded by vast plains to several directions. The place is perfect and secure for cross-country flights. “Good for 100km triangles”, organisers say!
