• The GIN Wide Open


The Naviter Open. Take your flying to the next level!

The GIN Wide Open became so popular, it spawned another event. Welcome to the Naviter Open! This is the second Naviter event and we expect it to be even better than the first. Pilots love the fun and friendly atmosphere, the in-depth daily briefings and the easy access to some of the best pilots in the world.  You will find this to be the perfect springboard into competition flying, or maybe you will see it as the ideal environment in which to improve your XC skills. Or simply enjoy flying in an international friendly setting where the flying and social experience counts for much more than the results.

The Naviter Open is so popular that for every pilot that we accept we turn several away. We therefore urge you to register quickly once we open registration so as to ensure you do not miss out. The Naviter Open is a competition in its own right, but will share many philosophies with the GIN Wide Open.

The venue for 2018 is St Jean, France.  Registration will open on December 26th 2017 at 11:00 CET (10:00 UK time, 11:00 Central Europe)
