Orlowski is 2018 European Champion

Published: 7th Nov 2018 by Civa News

Alexandre Orlowski beat off a strong challenge from fellow French pilots Louis Vanel and Mikael Brageot to take the European Champion’s title after an excellent unlimited championship at Jindřiuchuv Hradec airfield (LKJH) in the south of the Czech Republic during early September.

Inevitably the French Team took the team title by a little over 4 percent, chased by the Russian Team in second and the Hungarian Team in third place. The event was somewhat affected by poor weather, and ultimately the third Free Unknown was abandoned after only six pilots had flown.

In the Freestyle event held on the final Saturday afternoon a strong performance by local Czech hero Martin Šonka secured the European Freestyle Champion’s crown for him ahead of the French pair Alexandre Orlowski and Louis Vanel who occupied the runner-up silver and bronze slots.
