Launch your 2020 flying season with NOVA
These are the upcoming NOVA events
NOVA BORDAIRRACE: 17/4 - 19/04/2020 Gaisberg (Salzburg) | 15/5 - 17/05/2020 Schöckl (Graz) | 03/7 - 05/07/2020 Aflenzer Bürgeralm (Hochschwab)
At the NOVA Bordairrace you have to display tactical, athletic and flying skills. For 33 hours, the pilots try to cover the greatest possible distance from the launch site and return in time only by hiking and flying. This exciting race can be followed via live tracking - so fans at home can track the current location of the participants at any time.
The winners get great prizes from NOVA: a NOVA paraglider, the ultralight MONTIS harness, the INVERTO rucksack/airbag that has been optimised for hike & fly, and much more.
In case one round has to be cancelled, the alternative dates will be: 04/09 - 06/09/2020

NOVA HIKE & FLY DAYS with Vera Polaschegg: 09/10 - 11/10/2020
Together with nature lover and experienced NOVA team pilot Vera Polaschegg you can explore beautiful autumn landscapes and go flying together in October. Where exactly the Hike & Fly Days will take place this time is still to be decided - this will be determined last minute depending on the weather conditions.
With these words Vera invites pilots to the event: "At the NOVA Hike & Fly Days the focus is on sociable hiking and flying, relaxation and pleasure. Using NOVA demo paragliders or with our own paragliders, we will hike to selected launch sites together in the warm autumn sun at a leisurely pace, fly in pleasant autumn thermals and meet in the evening for a talk and social."
Alternative dates in case of bad weather: 16/10 -18/10/2020
