The #GEMAB 23 is also a competition

9 May 2023

Even if it does not have the same value as a national or world championship, to enter the Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons Trophy ranking is an international honor. Ten pilots have already won since 1989. French and Germans in particular. Only the first ten are ranked. Beyond the #GEMAB Trophy, there are also two other competitions that reward dedicated pilots, those who have more than 30 years of license and the sons and daughters of pilots, respectively. These are usually precision events on targets. The pilots take off from the Chambley airfield and by playing with the wind, must succeed in reaching one of the targets located a few kilometers away. A team of scorekeepers on the ground then measures the distance between the marker launched from the gondola and the heart of the target.
