Cross-country and competition
Once you’re qualified a whole world of cross country flying and competition awaits. South Africa’s pilots are world class and regular events are held. At these competitions, tasks involve flying courses around set points – often at speeds in excess of 250 km/hour, with skill and tactics pitted against the forces of nature and fellow flyers to be the first plane back to the airfield. Technology allows glider enthusiasts to review each of the flights in 3D on online platforms.
