Event info

Welcome to a Swedish Cup in the record breaking area of Ålleberg and Falköping!
The comp will be held in may 2022 and it is FAI cat2 sanctioned.

Location: Ålleberg (soaring ridge) or Falköping Airport (towing)
We will be based at the classic hill Ålleberg (foot launch) or Falköping Airport (towing)
Ålleberg is flyable on the West side (with WSW-W-WNW-NW wind) or the East side with east winds.
If the wind is not suitable (south or north or too weak or to cross winds) for Ålleberg we'll be towing from Falköpings Flygplats 3km from Ålleberg near the Falköping town.
All participants must be prepared to get to the takeoff chosen every day on their own.

Comp beginner friendly!
We especially encourage comp-rookies to join as all tasks shall be made so everyone will have a decent chance of reaching goal or at least get away on nice XC flights.

Elapsed time will be used on all tasks and re-starts will be allowed (until the time the start cylinder is closed) so if you bomb out you'll wanna hurry back to TO or get in the towing queue...

Pilot Quantity:
35 pilots will be the maximum participating amount of pilots due to the towing capacity (pilots are allowed to relaunch if they did not exit the startgate.)
25% (9pilots) participant spots are held for international pilots according to CIVL rules for a cat2 event until 15 days before the comp.

Registration open: Sunday 3 April 1800.
Fee: 850 SEK or 85 EUR

LOCAL RULES:

The competition will be valid if minimum one task with minimum 10 pilots participating is done according to the Swedish Cup rules.

License:
Swedish pilots need Swedish P2 + Comp1/2 + FAI license.
Foreign comp pilots need FAI license.
If the comp isn't full then Swedish Pilots without Comp1 or P2 are welcome to join but will not get official scoring valid for FAI ranking.

More rules...
International comp rules FAI CIVL Sporting Cod Section 7: https://www.fai.org/page/sporting-code-section-7
We also use the Swedish Cup (Sverige Cup) rules (Swedish only, foreigners might try to run it thru google translate...)
