FAI Acro World Tour Finals 2018 - Villeneuve (SUI) - Highlight

Paragliding: Artistic Routines above Lake Geneva

FAI Acro World Tour Finals

24-26 August, 2018, Villeneuve (SUI)

The finals of the Acro World Tour (AWT) from 24 to 26 August 2018 in Villeneuve, Switzerland, promise the very best in acro-paragliding. For three days, the world's best acro paragliders compete high over Lake Geneva for the prestigious overall victory in the 2018 AWT – in front of over 30,000 spectators and surrounded by the picturesque Swiss Alps.

“Acro” is the highest art of paragliding. It combines grace and flow in a series of spectacular maneuvers. The perfect execution of the flight routines requires mastery of the glider and extreme precision. In competitions, the pilots show a sequence of certain maneuvres in a restricted airspace above the water.
