The 14th FAI World Paragliding Championships, Roldanillo, Colombia, is less than a month away, with registration opening on 10th January. This is the first CIVL Category 1 paragliding event to mandate the use of CIVL Competition Class (CCC) gliders. The final list of CCC certified gliders allowed to fly at this event is available here.
Gliders with an aspect ratio (AR) higher than 7.0, previously certified to EN-D, must now be modified to meet CCC certification. Contact the manufacturer for information on whether you will need risers, riser limiters and/or new lines retrofitted.
All EN gliders with AR of 7.0 or less are eligible to fly.
Glider checking will be carried out in Roldanillo. CIVL has appointed Denis Cortella (FRA) to check gliders and other equipment. It is each pilot's responsibility to ensure that all his/her equipment complies with the rules in force.
If you are unsure whether your glider complies, you must check with the manufacturer. See also the equipment rules (glider, helmet, harness, reserve parachutes etc) set out in S7B of the Sporting Code.
Amendments to the Local Regulations have been approved. The latest version of these Local Regulations can be downloaded here.
At registration, all pilots will need to provide a completed and signed Pilot Experience Declaration. You can prepare in advance by downloading it from here. Blank forms will be available at HQ.
