Welcome to airport Šumperk. Next virtual soaring contest is prepared for you - this time with name Praděd Gliding 2010. Praděd (1491 metres) is the highest mountain of Hrubý Jeseník mountains and Moravia and is fifth highest mountain of Czech Republic. The average annual temperature is about 1°C. A television transmitter is situated on the top, 162 m high. The upper platform is used as a watchtower.
All starts and finishes will be done at Šumperk airport. Competition class - 15m FAI, 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 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.
