Since 1998 every year the world’s best paraglider and hangglider pilots meet in Villeneuve (Switzerland) to show their skills over the lake Geneva for thousands of spectators.
This famous station of the World Cup Tour is growing more and more every year. In 2004 29 paraglider pairs took part in the synchro competition. In this part of the race the Rodriguez brothers are unbeatable since 6 years…
In 2006 RedBull Vertigo will be officially the 1st FAI World Aerobatics Championships from 16th to 27th august.
Acroaria is maybe the most beautiful location of the World Aerobatics Tour. Since 2001, the best acro pilots of the world get togather to present their best performance in Omegna, over the beautiful Orta lake.
This event was organized in 2005 first, as the first acro competition in Austria above Zell am See. Following the example of other successful contests like Vertigo-Voss the pilots jump from a helicopter in the final of the competition. In the first edition of the event 16 competitors took part and 10 of them came from abroad. During the 2 days long race the organizers did a nice job and it is a good reference to make Paranoia an FAI-event in the future (however officially acro flying is still prohibited in the german speaking countries).
