• 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 third Naviter event and we just know it will be the best yet!

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 of the former GIN Wide Open.

The venue for 2019 is Tolmin, in Slovenia. Why did we choose Tolmin for this year. Simple. Slovenia is the home of Navityer, and Tolmin is the best place in eastern Europe for such an event!
