WOF 2018#40: Acro World Tour 2018 - Villeneuve (SUI)

Paragliding: Artistic Routines above Lake Geneva

FAI Acro World Tour Finals

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.
