Dear friends,

We are happy to invite you to join us in the Balkans Hang Gliding Open Cup 2013 registered in FAI as Class 2 hang gliding competition. It will take place at the Koniavo mountain in the South-West part of Bulgaria, the Balkan peninsula. As we mentioned above the dates are 1st -8th of June 2013.

The competition is OPEN so pilots from any country member or associated member of FAI can take part in it.

Free camping space will be provided! Only 5 minutes away form the take off in front of the Headquarter. 

What about the place?

Koniavo mountain is situated near the town of Kiustendil.
It is only an hour and a half away by car from the capital of Bulgaria - Sofia.The Koniavo mountain offers good conditions for cross country flying and the surroundings of the town of Kiustendil are full of possibilities for sightseeing and entertainment. You can see it on the map here:




*When you reach the blue point you have to catch the road going up to the mountain and follow the signs to reach the Bandera ranch and the Headquarter

Up in the mountain where our headquarter will be placed we will be at 1400m ASL and we can get the perfect relax and recreation in the fresh mountain air. Our host will be "Bandera ranch" where we can ride horses or bicycles, hike or just take a walk in the mountain.

The camp and the headquarter will be only a few minutes away from the take off. The take off is reachable by car.

The active flying season starts early in spring, the take off is on the south slope so thermals are guaranteed :)

See you in the air!!!
