Events and testivals in Europe this late winter/early spring

Wednesday, 25 February 2015

It is that time of year again; a time of pent-up frustrations with the long winter hibernation that the European climate dictates (although some regions have experienced unseasonally good flying conditions this winter). But as the spring creeps closer, so do all the events that are there to showcase what the paragliding industry has been up to in their R&D departments lately.

In ttestivals winter2015 allhe next few weeks we'll be going to the following events to present our goodies to the flying-starved audience:

  • ¤ The Thermik Messe (expo) in Sindelfingen, Germany, taking place on Feb. 28th,
  • ¤ The Stubai Cup in Austria, taking place during the weekend of March 6th to 8th,
  • ¤ And finally the Lijak Testival in Slovenia, on the weekend of March 28th to 29th


At all these you'll be able to see all of our precious kit, and weather permitting you're even encouraged to test fly it at the two latter events! Besides, there will be UP staff there, ready to discuss all the details of our gliders with you so that any questions you may have will be answered right from the horse's mouth. We look forward to seeing you all!
