The Polish championships were carried out in Stalowa Wola, the planned venue for the 2019 European Championships near the Ukrainian border.

Because of the small number of meteorology stations in the area it was not always easy to figure out the weather situation which led to interesting conditions.

Nevertheless, some very high average speeds were achieved. The fastest daily average speed was achieved on the second day by Christoph Matkowski with his ASH 31 Mi at over 140 km/hr. This was still only good for third place for the day because of the application of handicap factors.
