Spectators, passengers and experienced pilots from around the world are invited to attend the event. Cloud base is consistently about 2000ft over launch and getting there offers perfect respite from the heat. Approximately 1400 feet below launch, the LZ is a spacious and grassy soccer field, only moments away from the hotel.
The site's relaxed flying conditions juxtapose with the energized atmosphere at launch. The dedicated percussion band plays non-stop all day as hundreds of spectators shout with excitement as each glider leaves the ground. Television and radio crews conduct interviews with pilots and passengers, alike, capturing overall enthusiasm. Women dressed in their finest Easter attire parade by, creating a wonderful display of vibrant colors. Eager tandem passengers wait anxiously to be matched up with a pilot to make their first flight.
