Task 1

2018-04-14 16:47
Das neue Format ist bei den Piloten perfekt angekommen. Auch Top-Piltoten der Liga wechselten auf EN-B Schirme.
Das Wetter war perfekt, die Basis allerdings für das Zillertal ziemlich tief - auf ca. 2300m.
Dafür war der Talwind zu dieser Jahreszeit kein Problem.
Am Ende waren 53 Piloten im Goal.
Tasksieger Simon Arnold vor Eichholzer Heli und Joachim Oberhauser.
Die Teamwertung gewinnt das Team Skywalk vor Team Flywear und Team Südtiro.
Morgen um 9:00 gibt es wieder Briefing am Landeplatz.
Wetter schaut gut aus :)

Zillertal Battle 2018

FAI Cat 2 competition with max. EN-B gliders

The Zillertal Battle is a new PG format, where every thermal pilot can compete with the best pilots in the scene with identical material. The new competition format will be very similar as known, but with some changes.

The biggest difference will be, that only max. EN-B glides can be used. The route to be completed is of course weather dependent, but the task will be designed, that most of the route can be seen from the landing area Bruggerstube.

Also the task length will be designed, that hobby pilots can handle it. The number of pilots is limited to max. 80 pilots and the entry fee a little higher than usual. Therefore, we have prize money!

The competition will be organized by the flying club Golden Eagles - Alpine Gliders Zillertal in the name of the Austrian Aero Club .
