Becoming the host of the PGAWC event was no easy feat, according to Roy Rahmanto, Secretary of the Indonesian Aerosport Federation (FASI) for NTB. He explained that the successful completion of the bidding process and meeting all the necessary requirements took place last year. Rahmanto made these comments on Monday (12/6/2023).

The location has secured approvals from the landowner, Lanud ZAM, the NTB Provincial Government, and the Local Government of Central Lombok, according to his statement. Sky Lancing Paragliding Lombok holds the exclusive permission to fly at altitudes of up to 200 meters.

The Indonesian leg of PGAWC is scheduled for July 27-30, with a maximum of 80 participants. Sky Lancing has been chosen as the host for 2023, 2024, and 2025. Indonesia, as the host, has reserved a quota of 15-20 athletes. Presently, 65 athletes from 16 countries, including Indonesia, have already registered online.

The registered participants who completed their online registration will go through a selection process, considering their world rankings. With administrative tasks now finalized, the attention turns to technical preparations and the coordination of the jury. “We have a panel of 13 judges, including representatives from Thailand and Malaysia,” he mentioned.
