Event info

This year the Pre-World Championship 2016 is held together with XXXIII Guarnieri International Trophy. Guarnieri International Trophy is one of the most famous paragliding competitions in Italy held on an annual basis since 1984. For many years already pilots come to Pedavena in Belluno province of Italy to enjoy the great landscapes of Dolomite Alps.

Flying site

Monte Avena flying site is located in south-west of the Dolomites mountain range in Italian Alps. The region is very popular for its beautiful scenery and natural reserve parks. Usually fights take direction towards the city of Belluno where the highest peaks often reach an elevation more than 2000 m ASL. Best season for paragliding competition is from May to August with sunny days and thermal activity. The main wind is from south, south-east with an average cloud base around 2.000 - 2.500 meters with a temperature from 20C to 30C.

Take off Monte Avena (1400 mt. ASL)
The place has several launch grounds that allows pilots choose several directions depending on the wind , south, east or west.

Take off West - 46.030513, 11.816399
Take off South, South-East - 46.029925, 11.826044

The Monte Avena is essentially a wide pasture land with no obstacles. In this open wide place more than 20 gliders can arrange their flight and top landing is possible even to newly patented pilots. Thanks to a level dirt road it is easy to get to even foo minibus or an ambulance. Near to the take off there is a parking area for more than 30 cars and an agritourist resort (Malga Campet).

The whole area is fair for flying and there are several safe landings and the main roads going to the flight area are not busy and the pilots’ pick-up is easy.

Launch site is a 25 minute drive on an asphalted (except for the last 2 km) road from the main landing area/HQ and can be accessed by all types of vehicles.
All the pilots and the team leader will have transport to the take-off area during event days by buses or shuttle bus.
Back to the main take off there is an ample parking area available for visitors.

The official landing is on the sports area of “Boscherai” in Pedavena (46.029962, 11.879796, 350 m ASL) at the bottom of Monte Avena, east of Belluno valley, a plateau which stretches to the west about 40 km and 15 to the north. Thanks to its wide extension of about 20.000 m2 and absence of obstacles the rectangular surface of the ground allows safe landings whatever is the wind direction.

Today the landing ground is a part of a bigger sports area which includes two fields for football and rugby, bathroom and lavatory and a car park for more than 60 cars. During flying competitions and events this area becomes a parking area for vans and camping lot available to pilots and their families.
