2018 Team GB Applications

Dear Hang gliding Competition Pilots,

As the 2017 competition season comes to an end, planning begins for the forthcoming 2018 events.

Krushevo

In 2018 we have the 20th FAI European Hang Gliding Class 1 Championship, along with the 8th FAI World Hang Gliding Class 5 Championship. The dates for both championships are 8 to 21 July 2018 to be held in Krushevo, Macedonia.
The panel would like to invite all pilots who would like to put themselves forward to be considered for selection for these events to do so before the 
end of the weekend of the 14th/15th October 2017

British Open Series -2017

We now have confirmed dates for this year's British Open Series - BOS2017; details can be found on the dedicated BOS website 

The BOS is a flexible and accessible series of UK based national competitions, that includes a Rigid (class V) Class , Flexwing (Classs 1) and Club Class, for those pilots who wish to move up, but are not yet ready to commit themselves fully to national championship level. You will find pilots from this level right up to national squad level taking part in these friendly comps.

Series trophies will be awarded at the end of the Third meet.
