Contest is over, finally we have winners: 1st Helmut Kuenne (F9), 2nd Sandor Laurinyecz (LS) and 3rd P Geza (GP9). Seems like Helmut become a "PW-5 King" here, very well done Helmut (and thank you for CompMan again)! Thanks to all pilots for joining us and special congratulation goes to winners! See you next time on another competition.

PW-5 SmykWelcome to the website of another virtual soaring competition at We have prepared special contest - small competition with five racing days for world class. And why Řáholec? There is a fairy tail about bandit Rumcajs. And Rumjcajs lived in Řáholec wood. Who don't know nothing about, should take a look at video. And airport in Jičín is our start/finish airport for this competition. That's why we have Rumcajs family on official skin for PW-5 :-)

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! Will be need registration, server password will be published in briefing. After flight IGC file must be uploaded to this website. More informations about contest in competition rules.

Day, name & time: Saturdays from September 12th till October 10th, 2009 / Raholec Cup 2009 / 18:00 UTC

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.
