2019 FAI PARAGLIDING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
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, three men and three ladies will be taking part.
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.
