25th Stubai Cup March 4-6 2016
The Stubai Cup – Celebrating a Quarter Century
For the Stubai Cup 25th anniversary event many pilots from all over Europe and beyond came to the Stubaital to test fly new wings from 27 manufacturers. The three day long Testival from the 4th -6th of March 2016, saw a mix of weather, from blue skies to light snowfall in beautiful Stubai, the “living room” of the paragliding scene. As usual, flight- shows, exhibits, paragliding stars, food and great music made for a party atmosphere.
Hosted by local paragliding school Parafly the site is a perfect spot for testing gliders. Two launch sites were prepared at the top of the Elferbahn in Neustift and the Schlick 2000 in Fulpmes.
Retro was the motto for the 25th anniversary cup, and saw paragliders and equipment from past decades. Neon colors, perms, mustaches and mullets all added to the fun look back at the history of paragliding.
Once again, the event offered pilots the chance to test new models in the skies around Stubai, and learn about the newest trends in all paragliding equipment. The G-Force trainer was once again a big hit.
On Friday evening four-time Red Bull X-Alps winner Chrigel Maurer gave an exciting presentation of his impressive adventures in flight.
Saturday was dedicated to honoring the pioneers and icons of paragliding. After the annual all-you-can-eat buffet, the 25th anniversary of the event was celebrated with an incredible Retro Party, with great music from the past. A great time was had by all!
On Sunday, the weather allowed pilots to test fly gliders from the many international manufacturers, and the tombola was held, the grand prize being a paraglider worth 3000 Euros. This year’s lucky winner was Anke Becker from Germany.
As always, special gratitude has to be given to all the volunteers and members of the Parafly Club for their tremendous help. Also gratitude to the sponsors: Alpen Paragliding Center Stubai and the flight school Parafly, the tourism association Stubai, Red Bull and Austria Alpin, as well as Schlick 2000 and the Elferlifte.
See you next year!
The Stubai Cup was founded by Hans Peter Eller of the Flugschule Parafly in 1988. For the past 10 years the event has been a memorial to his amazing vision and love of paragliding. Every year sees more and more pilots taking part in this wonderful flying experience
