The 29th Ukrainian Open Hanggliding Championship has been passed. 2008-08-01

The place is the former military airbase located 150 km to the east from Kiev. It is a beautifully situated place the flatland with large fields, roads to any direction, with the weather as a rule better than in west Ukraine with blue sky and high cloud base. The aerotowing lunches get you up into the sky easy. The second year some enthusiastic hang-glider pilots from Kiev spend weekends here flying for fun, flying triangles and open distance routes. There is a campsite to stay and nice river to swim.

Sunny weather, friendly atmosphere, 7 flying tasks in row there was a lot of fun. The 24 pilots took part in competitions including 4 friends from Russia. There were some good days with completed tasks and some tricky days with completed tasks but weak thermals.
