Liptov Shepherd GP 2010Welcome to airport Ružomberok. Next virtual soaring contest is prepared for you - this time with name Liptov Shepherd 2018 - 2nd edition now. First edition of contest Liptov Shepherd we had in year 2010 in Grand Prix style. Liptov is an unofficial region in northern Slovakia, where town Ružomberok is located too. In the past shepherds were an inseparable part of Liptov, so we decided to put them into title of this contest.

Length of tasks will be about 300 km, we will race in STANDARD CLASS (ASW28, Discus2, LS8) with PDA. Competition servers will always start at 20:00 CET/CEST (19:00/18:00 UTC). Overall results is simple count of all eight 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.
