Europeans 2016 2016-08-12

The 19th FAI European Hang Gliding Class 1 & 7th FAI World Hang Gliding Class 5 Championships which was held on July 16-30, 2016 in Krushevo, Macedonia is over.

There were pilots from 22 countries flying in the Champilonships: 88 pilots in class 1 and 31 pilots in class 5. With 24 Aeros gliders participating in class 1, eight of them placed in first 20.

Our compliments to new European Champions: Christian Ciech in flex wings and Tim Grabovski in rigids. Congratulations to Italian Team, they really dominate in most hang gliding competitions nowadays. Complimenti!

Our compliments also to Hungarian and Czech teams for their outstanding performance, placing 2nd and 3rd and beating traditional countries. Well done!

We also congratulate Peter Neuenschwander - relatively new hang glider pilot, but with huge paragliding experience for becoming 3rd. Peter was flying Aeros Combat 12.7C. Well done, Peter!

We would also like to congratulate a young Ukrainian pilot Evgen Lysenko for his 11th place, flying Aeros Combat 12.7 GT. This was his first big international competition. Congratulations, Evgen!
