Status: Completed!
Date: 19.11.2011.

This beatiful hike & fly was organized by Renato from the flying school Paramania! Thanks a lot for everything!!!
As much as 31 pilots came at the meeting in Ascona and filled up two busses that took us to Purèra at about 1100m! The walk from there to the take-off in Urione 1596m, above the Alpe di Naccio, takes about one hour. Just follow the street and yellow path signs, you can't go wrong!
A fantastic automn day with some little thermals, that's pretty nice for November. Take a look at the photos and enjoy the short video!
