Welcome to Vertigo Voss 2018 APWT

This is a FAI CAT 2 Acro competition and is organized under the Acro Paragliding World Tour. 

We use a boat for towing which will provide the pilot with ca 800-1000 masl altitude.

There will be prize money for the winners.

The results from this competition will be the basis for the slot list for Expression Session, in which the pilots D-bag from a helicopter.

It is desirable that all pilots have experience with towing and a license for this before the comp starts.
