As a repeat of summer 2016, Macedonian organizers have accepted to organize the 8th FAI World Hang Gliding Class 5 Championship, along with the 20th FAI European Hang Gliding Class 1 Championship. The dates for both championships are August 5 till 17, 2018.
A practice event will be run for both classes on July 8 to 15, 2017. Be aware that this practice event is not formally a test event (as authorized by CIVL Bureau – no steward will be sent). It will have a Category 2 event status and will be widely open to pilots of all nationalities.
