2000 € are still waiting for the best flying wolf!

After our attempt last year we decided to give the 1st Monte Lupo Open another chance in 2017 - and we pimped it a bit.... This year the Slovenian airspace is for the comp available too!!!

As discussed at the pilots' dinner in front of the hangar the entry fee for all "2016 participants" is EUR 55,- (without t-shirt, 2017 is the same). For all new participants the price is again EUR 65,- like last year. There is also a reserve date (one week after) and we will decide if the comp takes place as close as possible (Tuesday or Wednesday before the comp-date)!!! Just to avoid a disappointment and a "waiting-comp". In case of cancellation payback of the full amount!!!

Of course we hope for good weather and thrilling tasks to find out who is

the best flying wolf and will win EUR 2.000,- cash - because "The winner takes it ALL!!!!!"

Flying site

Koralpe flying site is on the boarder to Styria in the eastern part of Carinthia.
With the valley being encircled by mountains (Koralpe, Saualpe etc.), there are a lot of opportunities for ridge-races and triangular tasks. Even cross-border flights to Slovenia are possible.
Within the valley, there are a lot of large, unfenced spaces, so landing is never a problem. It also has a perfect road infrastructure, so that the retrieval is very easy and fast.

Take off Waldrast - 1500m ASL (46° 49.118′ N, 14° 55.905′ E)
Starting direction is west with a grassy slope and about 30° steep. The landing valley beneath is at 460m ASL.
In the summer, the general wind direction is S, SW, W.

Nice XC-flights in the region
