12th FAI World Paragliding Accuracy Championships

It will be held in Bulgaria for the first time

World Paragliding Championships in the target landing discipline.

The event will take place from 20 to 28 October 2023

in the city of Sopot.


Lift Sopot - one of the best places for paragliding flights was nominated as a host in 2020 as a result of numerous successfully organized international competitions and an excellently prepared presentation.

The World Cup has the highest rating in the sports calendar of The International Air Sports Federation (FAI) and brings points for the world ranking.


130 leading pilots from 45 countries will take part in the competition.

The competitive flights in this discipline are quite attractive, both for the participants and for the audience. The target will be located near Lift Sopot. The target is an electronic measuring device and reads a deviation from the ideal center in 1 cm. The spot that the pilots must survive is 2 cm in diameter, which is identical to the size of a 5 cent coin.

Pilots are required to have maximum concentration and feel for the wing on final approach and landing. A panel of judges monitors the first point of landing and reports the result of each competitor. The measurement is up to 200 cm. In the final classification, the winner is the participant with the smallest sum of centimeters from all completed flights.

12 rounds are planned, after round 6 the team competition will end and the first 60 pilots will remain to fight in the individual classification. Prizes will be awarded in the following 4 categories: Team by Nations, Overall, Women and Youth.
