Come join us in beautiful Truckee in July 2017
The Region 11 FAI Contest will be held again for the 6th consecutive year at Truckee Tahoe Soaring Association/Soar Truckee from 17 through 22 July. The FAI Contest is open to Standard, 15 Meter, 18 Meter, 2-Seater and Open Class gliders and is handicapped like a Sports Class Contest but with permission to carry water ballast. Handicaps will be adjusted according to the provisions of current rule 188.8.131.52.6.
Pilots who have participated in prior editions are enthusiastic about this contest and will participate again. What we offer is tasks that promote cross country flying in the Sierra Mountain and in the Nevada Desert environments. Tasks are selected to get the best out of the day, with lengths that allow ships with different handicaps and pilots with different skills to complete each task. A few pilots will fly to win, everybody will fly for the joy of it. We will accept 20 pilots in the contest this year.
