Event info

The competition “Montegrappa Trophy 2021” is a FAI Category 2 paragliding event. The main organiser are “Aero Club Lega Piloti” (via San Miro, 23867 Suello (LC) – Italy) and “ASD Volo Libero Montegrappa” (piazza al Paradiso, 31030 Semonzo di Borso del Grappa (TV) – Italy). "Montegrappa Trophy 2021" is currently authorized by the Italian Airsports Federation and the National Olympic Committee. The restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic are still active in Italy as well as in the rest of Europe and at the moment travelling is still difficult, however, in the long run of the pandemic, we have learned that things change very quickly and no one knows exactly what the situation will be in early April. We have therefore decided to start the necessary activities, with the hope that the "Montegrappa Trophy 2021" can be held. It is possible to register until 05/03/2021 and the list of selected pilots will be published on 07/03/2021. The payment request will be sent only when we are sure that there are the necessary conditions to run the competition.

If an Italian pilot renounces or does not pay the entry fee within the established deadline, his/her place will be reassigned to another pilot, selected according to the FAI WPRS ranking system.

10 places will be assigned to women.

In case of equal rankings, priority will be given to the first pilot who made the pre-registration.
