Second FAI European Paramotor Slalom Championships kicks off in Spain

The second FAI European Paramotor Slalom Championships opened with a short ceremony on 11 June in Bornos, Andalusia, Spain where the competition is being held from 9-19 June 2016.

Event Director José Ortega and FAI Microlight and Paramotor Commission (CIMA) President Wolfgang Lintl welcomed 37 competitors from eight countries who are competing in order to find the champions in two classes.

The qualifying rounds are being held from 12-17 June and the finals on 18 June. This is the first European Slalom Championships to be held over water, a change prompted by concerns over safety. Pilots must fly a pre-determined course around several inflatable pylons – the quickest pilot wins.
