Invitation to WMC2020

Dear Friends,

Would you like to improve your flying skills, have fun and you haven´t been to an international competition before? Prior to the World Microlight Championship 2020 in Hosin, Czech Republic, we are proudly introducing the very first International Microlight Flying Navigation Camp with the aim to welcome new faces into our competition flying community. It will be taking place at at his beautiful airfield between 3rd and 5th August. The content of this event is the theory and also practice of navigation flying, maps, tasks and complete competition preparation guidance. We will get you from zero to competition-ready!

We are all so excited and honoured to organize WMC 2020 in Hosin. Our goal is to provide not only all competitors but also their families with a highly organized, fun and friendly competition experience that will be memorable and unique. We wish to restore the tradition of great championships that we remember from past. 

Airfield Hosin (LKHS) is located in the south part of the Czech Republic, has three runways and a fuel station on-site. The camp will offer all the necessary facilities as electricity, drinking water, toilets, showers and a free wi-fi. In the restaurant, there will be delicious traditional meals and drinks available. Shops are easily accessible in towns and villages nearby.

The championship will take place from 6th to 15th August for all classes up to 600kg. The competition itself will kick off with an opening ceremony on Saturday the 8th. The task catalogue will be published well in advance in order not to only simplify all the briefings, but mainly to give you a chance to enjoy flying above our picturesque landscape. Forget about precision landing tasks with dangerous elements. Instead, please do look forward to cross country tasks to other airports, to tasks giving you stunning views or telling you interesting stories. The 17th FAI World Microlight Championships will be festively terminated with the prize giving during the closing ceremony.

We don´t want you to come competing only. We want you to bring your partners, family members and friends over and to enjoy your stay in the Czech Republic. Let´s meet in the evenings, have fun playing games, listening to good music, tasting nice beers from local breweries and let´s get to know each other bit more. In regards of day time activities, our tips for trips will be shared with you including all essential information and further assistance will be provided as well. It doesn´t matter, if you are interested in history, nature or sport. The South Bohemia combines it all. You can take part in a castle tour or admire the beautiful architecture of our historic towns. You can actively relax exploring our woods and mountains, you can swim in lakes and ponds or experience the adventure of canoeing.
