The 16th FAI World Paragliding Championship will be held in Krushevo, Macedonia from 5 to 18 August 2019.
Located at an altitude of 1350 m, Krushevo is the highest city in the Balkans and the ideal place for this year's World Championship; the plains at the front offer a perfect paragliding ground.
Krushevo has built up an excellent reputation as a base for national and international paragliding competitions over the past ten years and is a very worthy venue for this prestigious event.
This year, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Paragliding World Championships.
The best pilots in the world come from all over the world, with 150 pilots from 48 different countries, bringing together flight friends from as far away as Argentina, Japan, Iceland and New Zealand.
Six former world champions will participate: Pierre Remy (2017), Honorin Hamard (2015) and Charles Cazaux (2011). And for the ladies: Seiko Fukuoka Naville (2015, 2017), Klaudia Bulgakow (2013) and Petra Slivova (2003, 2007, 2011).
The top 15 Europeans in 2016 in Krushevo will be gathered here once again for what promises to be an amazing competition.
