Contest is finished, last racing day of Xmas Cup 2009 is over. And the winners are:

1st place for Sandor Laurinyecz (LS/Hungary)
2nd place for Soenke Neumann (SN/Germany)
3rd place for Piotr Raczynski (PIT/Poland)

Thanks to all pilots for joining us and special congratulation goes to the winners! On January 1st, 2010 we will have one additional task - special New Year 500 km over Czech Republic with 15m class (server starts at 19:00 CET/18:00 UTC and this task will be NOT counted in results). Big thanks goes to Miloš "Cadfael" Koch for preparing for us such a great sceneries as Czech republic. team wish you Happy New Year 2010 - and few outlanding and many good thermals!

Xmas Cup 2008Welcome to next small virtual soaring competition. 2nd edition of Xmas Cup. Length of tasks is about 200 km, we will race in STANDARD CLASS without PDA, serverstart always at 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC). Crash is scored with 0 points. Overall results is simple count of all 4 tasks. We are planning also New Year Fivehundreds - 500 km. This 500 km task will be not counted, but results will be here online too. Attention: choose carefully glider type in registration - with registered glider type you have to fly all task! More info at competition rules.

This competition is continued line of successful competitions like Raven Competition, Praděd Gliding, Liberec Eighteens, Kiwi Race and OCC. Please - give your attention to rules! Registration is needed, server password will be published in briefing. After flight IGC file must be uploaded to this website. More informations about contest in competition rules.

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.
