Nimbus-4 over Feshie airportWelcome to our website of another virtual soaring competition at We have prepared another contest - small competition with five racing days in open class. Feshie is our start/finish airport for this competition. In real life in this airport is located Cairngorm Gliding Club. More videos in Gallery section. 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 Christmas Minicup, Raven Competition, Praděd Gliding, Liberec Eighteens and Kiwi Race. 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.
