Twenty five pilots from Japan, the US, France and Poland are taking part in the Danang International Paramotor Race (DIPR 2012) from May 26-27.
They are competing in four events: top air speed, flying to avoid obstacles, flying in formation, and search and rescue.
This is the first time this type of competition is being held in Vietnam in accordance with International Air Sports Federation (FAI) regulations.
The DIPR 2012 is jointly organized by the Danang Municipal People’s Committee and the C.A.T.I. company, with consultation from the Japan Hang & Paragliding Federation (JHF) and the Japanese Airea company.
Deputy Chairman of the Danang Municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Xuan Anh said the DIPR 2012, which follows the Danang International Fireworks Competition, will help promote the city’s image to domestic and foreign visitors.
