Welcome to the Corryong Paragliding Open 2017 and thanks for your interest in flying and competing at the best Alpine flying site in Australia, the mighty Mt Elliot. The dates are 22nd - 28th January
For those unfamiliar with the area, Corryong is located just a few thermal glides from Mt Kosciuszko the highest mountain in Australia where historically the very first Australian Paragliding Nationals were hosted not far from here in Thredbo 1990.
Back then the first competition task was flown from the top of Mt Kosciuszko at 2200 metres. From on top of Mt Elliot you can see the Western face of the Main Range and in the early Spring and late Autumn its peaks are often still covered in snow.
The Corryong Open is a high level AAA/CAT2 competition with 450 WPRS Points available, it's sanctioned by the HGFA and aimed at experienced inland intermediate to advanced rated pilots. If you fit this category of pilot we would love for you to come fly with us and experience the magic of flying cross country in Corryong.
Our aim with this competition is to have safe, yet challenging XC tasks.
On behalf of our competition organisers and our staff and sponsors I would like to wish all competitors safe, challenging and fun XC flying for the week.
