Balkan Flying Tour 3rd - 17th August 2019
Historically these weeks are the best in this region for XC flying. Most of the competitions are held during this time.
What's the Plan?
We'll tour the best sites in Macedonia and Bulgaria during these competitions. It's the best time of the year for XC flying and we'll remain fully flexible. We will pick you up in Sofia Airport on Saturday the 3rd of August and drop you back there on Saturday the 17th.
In between, we'll be visiting the best sites for the conditions. If one site is working well, we'll stay for a couple of days, if it looks better elsewhere, we'll move on. We may fly on the competition sites during the comps if conditions are good there, we'll respect any restrictions and stay out of their way. The guides are all BHPA instructors and very current XC pilots. As always, when we fly a new site we haven't visited previously, we'll employ local guides (included).
We will use air conditioned vehicles (it gets hot in August). We will stay in hotels of at least 3* level where possible. We will try to make sure there is no room sharing (we can't guarantee this as we'll be booking 'on the fly' but we'll do our best). Breakfast will be included.
You'll need to be minimum BHPA Club Pilot rated (or equivalent). You need your own equipment and travel insurance to cover paragliding. The price is £1350, this includes B&B accommodation, Sofia Airport pick up and drop off, BHPA instructor led guiding, retrieves, pre and post flight briefings.
