Event info

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.

Flying site

The main takeoff site is Monte Rosato with an overall altitude of 1250 meters, 875 meters above the main landing site. The takeoff can be reached taking a paved road departing directly from the landing area. The takeoff-area is ample, with a pronounced inclination and enough room to unfold up to 20 wings at the same time. There are a multitude of alternative landing possibilities in front of the take-off. The take-off has a southwest orientation. The predominant wind is getting in from that direction. The takeoff is 200 meters below the top of the hill, so to shade eventual winds coming from different directions. Alternatives takeoff sites can be arranged in case of winds not compatible with the main takeoff.
