Sponsorship Opportunities

The British Open Paramotor Championships are the official annual event through which the UK’s most talented pilots challenge each other in XC navigation, flight planning, and aircraft control skills for the prestigious British National Paramotor Champion trophy.

The event scoreboard is also used as the primary basis for selection of the British Paramotor Team who compete international FAI World Championships. As a parallel Open Championship scoring stream, foreign pilots are welcomed to raise the competition level, and the event is sanctioned as FAI Cat. 2, with pilot scores eligible for the FAI (CIMA) World League Cup.

Sponsorship of the British Open Paramotor Championships is an excellent opportunity to promote your brand within the UK airsports community and beyond as well as meet your customers and potential customers face to face.

Event Dates: 6th – 10th July 2022 at Wingland Airfield, Lincolnshire

Anticipated pilot numbers: 30 (of which approx. 20% international)

In addition to challenging the top pilots, the event carries a central philosophy of pilot skill development, providing a safe and nurturing environment through which pilots at any level can improve their skills by learning from the top pilots in the country. The event offers two additional competition classes, tailored to encourage new entry competitors and widen participation in competitive paramotoring:

Discovery Class emulates the main Open Championship in most tasks, but recognises that not all pilots are confident in navigating without the use of GPS. It gives new entrants an opportunity to try out competition flying, and develop their skills without committing to the challenge of navigating with paper maps only.

Club Pilot Class is for pilots at club level in the BHPA training programme, looking to develop their skills and attain their BHPA Pilot (Power) rating through attending the championships, participating in seminars and tasks specifically designed for their level of experience, building their logged airtime hours, and learning from some of the most experienced pilots.
