Milica Bicanin (SRB) & Matjaz Feraric (SLO): PG Accuracy Champions

Milica Bicanin and Matjaz Feraric at World Air Games 2009In 2008, and just 21 years old, Milica Bicanin from Serbia became the 1st women’s European champion in paragliding accuracy.  Flying on her home ground at Niska Banja, Serbia, Milica flew consistently well over the gruelling 10 round, 6 day competition.  She had some tough competition from the 10 other women pilots, and came a creditable 35th overall. 

Milica’s top performances since then secured her a place at the World Air Games in 2009, at Avigliana, near Turin, Italy. In 2010, Milica was 2nd woman in the 2nd FAI European Paragliding Accuracy Championships, and 3rd woman in this year’s FAI World Paragliding Accuracy Championships.

Meanwhile, Matjaz Feraric from Slovenia is a comparative veteran champion, having competed in every FAI World and European Championship event since they began in 2000. He hs demonstrated consistent performance across varying conditions and terrain: He was FAI World PG Accuracy Champion in 2003, on home ground in Slovenia, and in 2007 on the frozen lake in Lithuania.  He was the first FAI European Champion in Serbia in 2008.  And he came third, landing on the raft on the lake in Avigliana, in the World Air Games in 2009.
