Fatra Gliding Cup 2013Welcome to our website of next virtual soaring competition at virtualsoaring.eu. After three years later we return to the Slovakia to have 3rd edition of Fatra Gliding Cup 2016.

We will race in 15-meter Class (ASW27, Ventus2 and LS6), tasks lenght more than 250 km, 7 racing days. All task will have take-off and landing at Martin airport in Slovak republic.

We will use beautiful Czechoslovakia 3.0 scenery, author: Miloš "Cadfael" Koch. Servers will always start at 20:00 CET. Overall results is simple count of all 7 tasks.

Attention: choose carefully glider type in registration - with registered glider type you have to fly all tasks! Server passwords will be published in briefing page. After each race you must send IGC file to be scored! More informations about competition in Rules section.

Condor › The Competition Soaring Simulator

Condor: The Competition Soaring SimulatorCondor: 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 www.condorsoaring.com.
Some videos from this soaring simulator also here.
