Kössen Super Paragliding Testival @ Koessen
May 31 – Jun 3 all-day
Kössen Super Paragliding Testival @ Koessen | Kössen | Tyrol | Austria

 

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.
