Swiss Cup (flex) final

31. August - 1. September 2024

Pls read the Local Regulations first:

If possible, we will go to Grindelwald with landing in Interlaken at the 50-Year-ceremony of the Swiss Hanggliding Federation.

No headquarter services provided. Pilots are responsible for waypoint installation on their instruments, and for mailing their back-up igc-file to the organizer in case of problems with their tracks.

Swiss Cups are organised by a local club in cooperation with the SHV and the Swiss League. Normally, the Swiss League is responsible for all technical matters (meteo, task, live tracking, scoring).
If a Swiss Cup is cancelled, it is possible that a Swiss Cup flex will be announced at another location with better flying conditions. This under the condition that the flight profit is probably good.

Swiss Cups flex are organised by the Swiss League. The location is determined by the best flying conditions, whereby the driving effort and the probable (flight) profit should be in reasonable proportion.  Therefore, they are held in the centre of Switzerland, when it is likely that one good task can be flown, and in the whole of Switzerland and border areas, when it is likely that two tasks can be flown.

Waypoint files
will be provided and must be uploaded to the GPS by the pilot.

Each pilot receives a tracker, which he must operate himself and install appropriately.

The evaluation of flights will be done using GPS tracks from the Livetrackers. Each pilot is responsible for his backup and must be able to send a valid igc to the organiser.
