On friday the 6th edition of Acrolac started at Bourget du Lac, close to Chambéry. It is an FAI2 category event and the french championship so there are a lot of french and some international pilots are participating. It was heavily raining all the night and in the morning, but finally the sun arrived and the conditions got better. 15 newcomer pilots had to make the safety qualification run by boat towing and not all of them passed the selection. Unfortunately there are only 3 synchro teams signed up for the competition.
On 25th of April Mike Küng performed the first indoor head over jump with paraglider in the Tropical Islands Hall (Berlin, Germany). He jumped from 94 meters above the ground and flew 40 seconds after a perfect opening. Related photo gallery: Mike Küng - indoor jump

We spent 3 weeks in Governador Valadares to train and to present acro during the Valadares Open XC competition. Beside those many rainy days (chuva!) we could also catch some with great conditions, above the huge black rock: Ibituruna.
