The Spring Meeting – Friuli Venezia Giulia Trophy 2019, at its third edition, is a FAI Cat 2 competition, recognized by Aero Club d’Italia FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale) which takes place in a flight zone well known by European pilots. It is also part of the big flying area which will host the XXII Hang Gliding World Championship in 2019.

The flight area is mainly in the foothill but, depending on weather conditions, it is possible to fly also in the Alps and in the flatland. The main take off during the comp will be monte Valinis. But, on the basis of daily forecasts, other take offs located in the Slovenian area could be used.
