PGA Czech Open
The PGA Czech Open is a traditional paragliding accuracy competition organized by the Student Paragliding Club since 2006, as an international championship of the Czech Republic. In recent years, it has been part of the Czech League in precision landing. In 2006, the contest joined the freshly established European Cup in precision of landing, which later turned into the World Cup (www.pgawc.org). It was held in Beskydy two years later and was attended by pilots from Japan. the successful organization motivated us to submit a successful bid for the organization of the 2011 Paragliding accuracy World Championship.

Strict adherence to rules, where needed, as well as a relaxed atmosphere during the competition, set it apart from the others. We want to congratulate the organizers for their efforts on creating one of the best European Cups thus far.”
