Fassa Sky Expo 2016 - Official Page

FASSA SKY EXPO 2016 is the third edition of the free flight-related event to be held in Campitello di Fassa (Dolomiti-Italy) on 30 September – 1-2 October 2016, where you can see and test the latest products of the best paragliders and hang-glider brands available on the market. It will be possible to test for the first time the news presented at Coupe Icare in Saint Hilaire the week before.
After the success obtained in the two first editions of the EXPO, it is with great pleasure that the friends of Icarus Flying Team Val di Fassa are ready to open the registration to the event and present the program of its third edition.
That said, the past results were very encouraging: the turnout in the fair was such as to seriously try the receptivity of Campitello di Fassa and certainly the cable car Col Rodella was the proof.
With the new year fresh in mind, and with renewed enthusiasm, thanks also to the many suggestions and comments received, we are finally here to confirm the days of the third edition of FASSA SKY EXPO, the fair where you can test the equipment on site for free flight of the largest producers of paragliding and hang gliding, flying over the Dolomites of the Val di Fassa and Trentino, the most beautiful mountains in the world!
The opening days of the EXPO will be Friday 30, September then continue Saturday 01 and finally close with the evening of Sunday 02, October 2016. The fair will be open to the public in three days from 09.00 to 18.30.
