The Newcomer Challenge offers a series of events for beginner comp pilots. Every day will be held briefings and debriefings and top pilots will share their knowledge with you. We from UP will be at all events to support our pilots and to offer demo wings (also the new 2-liners Meru and Guru) to interested pilots.

The winners receive attractive rewards from UP and the overall winner gets a spot in our international pilots team.

Here are the dates for the NCC series 2019:

--> March 08-10 Challenge Werfenweng

--> July 12-16 Challenge and ladies camp Silian

--> September 20-24 Challenge final Tolmin
