ATTILIO PRONZATI TROPHY edition 2023
The Attilio Pronzati Trophy aims to remember Attilio’s sporting spirit by rewarding performance flights according to his way of interpreting gliding.

A) Round trip
B) Any triangle (even non-FAI)
All pilots regularly registered with an Italian aeroclub may participate.
Enrollment is free and occurs with the first flight notification described below. A rider’s entry assumes unconditional acceptance of these regulations.
All types of gliders, motorized gliders and ULMs, single and two-seaters are allowed.
Valid for flights made from March 1 to September 15 departing from Italian territory.
Flights must be registered in the On Line Contest (OLC) system and then documented using GNSS flight recorders in IGC format, IGC approved or otherwise accepted by the OLC system. Electronic pre-declaration of the flight is mandatory.
It is mandatory to notify within 3 days of landing the result achieved with your flight, including the day and confirmation of publication on the OLC website: notification should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
For each flight, only the distance flown along the predeclared theme is counted; this distance, expressed in km, is divided by the handicap of the glider, using the attached handicap table. The result represents the score associated with the flight.
The ACAO will publish on its website www.acao.it the data of the best flight in the two pilot categories. A prize will be awarded for the longest flight, divided by handicap, in both the women’s and men’s categories.
The Attilio Pronzati Trophy will remain the property of CSVVA and will be kept in Calcinate.
The names of the winners year by year in both the women’s and men’s categories will be engraved on the Trophy. In the case of two-seaters the crew will be awarded.
The award ceremony for the winning pilots, who will be given an award, will take place at the National Gliding Congress of the relevant year.
