Expected in 2018
Every two years airs the International Hot-Air Balloon World Championship, where the best teams from around the world got qualified for. In 20I4 it took place in Brasil and two years later in Japan. Up to now the Hot-Air Balloon Club Gr. Siegharts has hosted several National Championships, including some Balloon Cups as well as some regional Championships.
But besides that, such an event like the Hot-Air Balloon World Championship Competition has never ever taken place in Austria before, until now.
There are 150 international teams from 38 different nations competing at the Hot-Air Balloon World Championship in Gr. Siegharts. Each qualified team is manned with 3-4 people. Besides the competitors there are around 150 officials and several accredited people from around the world responsible for ensuring a fair competition in Gr. Siegharts.
Hot Air Balloon Flights are scheduled to launch in best weather only twice daily, early morning (5 a.m.) and late afternoon (5 p.m.). The tasks will be set for pilots to accomplish before each flight. At a set time at the end of each flight the official crew members work closely together and determine who is winning the competition. Therefor competitors will be captured different grid positions for their next race.
There are several additional festival attractions throughout each day:
18.08.2018 Opening Event with Live music
