Event info

Welcome to the 8th Mosel Paragliding Open 2017 and thanks for your interest in flying and competing at our Mosel River sites.
For those who are unfamiliar with the area, the famous Moselle is running 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 wineyards of the Moselle, which allows us short ways for any wind direction. Save flatland flying with tricky technical handicaps because we are surrounded by some airspaces. Except the big SW take off at Klüsserath our take offs are pretty small. That is the reason our competition is limited to 85 Pilots.
We are running this event since 2007 now. After a longer break we are looking forward to invite the Mosel Open community again for no 8 at the end of April 2017. We decided to finish the event on Sunday before the bankholiday 1st of May That guarantees everybody a smart drive home or another XC flight with us.
