3rd place for Radek Mica (RM/LS8/Czech republic) with 177 GP points

Thanks goes to all pilots for joining us here in the sky over Liptov and special thanks to Radek (RM) for hosting servers and tasksetting. See you all in next contest at our website!

Welcome to airport Ružomberok. Next virtual soaring contest is prepared for you - this time with name Liptov Shepherd. Liptov is an unofficial region in northern Slovakia, where town Ružomberok is located too. In the past shepherds were an inseparable part of Liptov, so we decided to put them into title of this contest.

All starts and finishes will be done at Ružomberok airport. Competition class - STANDARD, DAeC index will be not used. The competition will use scoring system based on real-life GP, the adjustment relates to a system of scoring. More info in Rules. You must register for this contest - after registering and logging in you will have access to briefings and sending IGC files. IGC files are needed for your scoring - no IGC, no score. Tasks with PDA allowed. Server starts every saturday at 20:00 CEST (18:00 UTC). Attention: choose carefully glider type in registration - with registered glider type you have to fly all task!

Condor › The Competition Soaring Simulator

Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator

Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator is designed to recreate the ultimate experience of competition soaring on your PC. A lot of attention was put in to create an environment which would create an immersion of real competition flying. This means that the aerodynamics and weather physics were in focus of the development. The result is amazingly real feel of flight in all flight regimes and weather conditions which challenges a real soaring pilot on a competition day.

Amazing feel of flight due to the advanced flight dynamics model: Advanced 6DOF flight model for complete freedom of flying / Accurate sailplane performance and handling – also at and beyond critical angles of attack / Sailplane damage simulation – flutter, high G stress, collisions / High time fidelity physics engine (up to 500 cycles per second) / Accurate ground forces for realistic takeoffs, landings and crashes / Detailed, sub-object collision detection for mid air and ground object collisions / Accurate conditions for a realistic towing and winch start.

More informations about this simulator you can get at Some screenshots and movies from this soaring simulator also here.
