Which have favored the holding of two Italian championships, many international competitions where pilots from all over the world participated and still two world championships of free flight, 1999 and 2008.

The Hotel Bar Restaurant MONTE CUCCO in Tobia is located in the immediate vicinity of the take-offs and offers free flight enthusiasts reliable weather information and valuable flight advice, from old Cucco pilots with great experience, for unforgettable flights in safety The south take-off: to fly with winds from North / West – South / West.
