The Prodelta aeroclub is glad to announce the Italian Championship competition 2018. It will take place in Poggio Bustone (Rieti) from 27 of May up to 02 of June 2018. The flight area is known as one of the best zones for free flight in the center of Italy, also very well popular for the sail plane. The area is located in the middle of Italy very near to the “Appennini” mountain chain, where thermal activity is quite strong. This might be the reason that the very big distances in Cross Country regarding XC on Italy had been achieved in this location. It present a complex orography mixed of mountains high up to 2000 meters and wide plains full of green grasses. The site is very near to many Italian touristic attractions: Rome is just 80km far, Assisi and other Umbrian charming villages.
