PWC Macedonia


by Johannes Glatz

Since many years airg is proud partner of the PWC.
We are looking forward to the next event:

The 16th FAI Paragliding World Championship will take place in Krushevo,
Macedonia from the 5th-18th of August 2019.

Situated at an altitude of 1350m, Krushevo is the highest town in the
Balkans and a stunning location for this year’s World Championship; the
plains out front provide the perfect paragliding playground.
Krushevo has built up an excellent reputation as the base for both
national and international paragliding competitions over the past ten
years and is a very worthy venue for this most prestigious event.
This year we celebrate 30 years of the Paragliding World Championship.
The best in the World are coming from all over the World, with 150
pilots taking part from 48 different countries; bringing flying friends
together from as far afield as Argentina, Japan, Iceland and New Zealand.
Six previous World champions will be taking part: Pierre Remy (2017),
Honorin Hamard (2015) and Charles Cazaux (2011). And in the Ladies’
ranking: Seiko Fukuoka Naville (2015, 2017), Klaudia Bulgakow (2013) and
Petra Slivova (2003, 2007, 2011).
The top 15 from the Europeans in 2016 in Krushevo will all be reunited
here once again for what promises to be an amazing competition.
Just a reminder that you can keep up with all the action on where you can read the live Commentary, follow
the pilots on the tracking, keep up with all the scores and relive each
task thanks to the very talented Mr Broers.
