Event info

For those who are unfamiliar with the area, the famous Moselle runs down from France through Luxembourg until it joins the mighty Rhine. The Moselle twists and turns its way between Trier and Koblenz along Germany's most beautiful river valleys, exactly where our takeoffs are located - at the steep vineyards of the Moselle, which allows us short ways for any wind direction.

Event info

For those who are unfamiliar with the area, the famous Moselle runs down from France through Luxembourg until it joins the mighty Rhine. The Moselle twists and turns its way between Trier and Koblenz along Germany's most beautiful river valleys, exactly where our takeoffs are located - at the steep vineyards of the Moselle, which allows us short ways for any wind direction.

Safe flatland flying with tricky technical handicaps because we are surrounded by some airspaces.

With one exeception, our take offs are pretty small. Therefore our competition is limited to max. 85 Pilots.

We look forward to the event with anticipation and also to your participation!

The Mosel Trophy is organized by the local club "Die Moselfalken e.V." with the support of our friends from the neighboring club "DGF Rhein-Mosel-Lahn e.V.".

To avoid a double trip to the center of Germany for many pilots from the alps, the NRW Cup and the Mosel Trophy have teamed up 🤝 and coordinated their dates closely this year. In addition, the results of both events will be included in a combined overall ranking, our new German Midlands Cup. So, make sure to also check out the NRW Cup (https://airtribune.com/nrw-cup-2024/) and secure your spot there as well. If you applied for both comps your application will be handled with priority.

⚠️Please be aware ⚠️
- Flymaster live-trackers are mandatory; You can rent some for 20€ at HQ if needed
- Sunday is our spare day if we have not achived 3 valid tasks till saturday
