Paragliding World Cup (PWC) Drama 2010


One of the Paragliding World Cup events was held in Drama in Greece from 19.06. to 26.06.2010. Drama is located in northern Greece at the foot of the mountain Falakro, which is a well-known ski centre in the winter.


Drama is the most famous of the flying sites included in the Flying Safari Northern Greece, which Olympic Wings organizes for groups of pilots, flying clubs and schools. During this safari the pilots fly in different interesting areas of Northern Greece: Edessa, Mount Olympus, Nymphaion are on the schedule of the two weeks program.





The PWC headquarters, main camping facilities for the pilots and all well-coming and price-giving ceremonies were based in the village Petroussa, just 12 km away from the city of Drama.



Petroussa is already for the second time host of the Paragliding World Cup (pre-PWC in 2008) and the locals are very hearty with an extraordinary hospitality.



The local organization from Drama Airclub Aiolos with its president Ioannis Ioannidis proved again its success through high flexibility and of course the personal commitment of the locals.


We as guest pilots were impressed by the camping facilities at the football yard with free access, water, electricity, laundry and Wifi.





There are several flying sites around Drama, but the one used for the every day PWC tasks is located on top of the village Petroussa, offering besides a large take-off and landing good thermal and xc conditions.



The weather during this PWC was not the one Drama is famous for, though the competition pilots flew tasks up to 76,1 km.
