Polish & Lithuanian Open day 4

Another great day in Tolmin with a 79 km task. Hight cloudbase allowed the pilots to fly the route really fast, with the first pilot, Przemek Licznerski flying a DUDEK Coden, reaching the goal line within 2 hours and 7 minutes (average speed of almost 35 kph. At 18:10 the task was stopped due to a storm cloud developing over Kobarid. All pilots landed safely in Tolmin. Though the task was stopped, still 100 pilots managed to reach goal, with another 3 reaching ESS. After yesterday’s penalties for infringing the airspace today nobody flew too high (well, actually one pilot was 1 m too high and received a 2% penalty).

Tomorrow we are going to Lijak, where we might have more chances to fly a task.

Polish & Lithuanian Open day 2

It’s been a long day with some pilots spending almost 7 hours in the air. We had an 86 km task between Tolmin-Stol_tolmin-Polovnik and Tolmin again. The fastest in goal was Marek Robel (Niviuk Icepeak 7 Pro) right in front of Primoz Susa and Klaudia (Niviuk Icepeak 7 Pro) was the best girl. 81 pilots got to goal and a few more reached ESS. It looks like the good weather is here to stay, so we might expect some interesting tasks in the next two days.

IPPI 5 card is obligatory

Some people have been asking whether it’s absolutely necessary to present the IPPI 5 card at registration. And the answer is – yes, all foreign pilots flying a paragliding competition taking place in Slovenia must hold an IPPI 5 card. It is stated very clearly in the following Safety Directive issued by the Slovenian Civil Aviation Authority: Czytaj dalej
