Event info

Welcome to a Swedish Cup in the record breaking area of Ålleberg and Falköping!
The comp will be held from 21st to 23rd May 2021 and will be FAI cat2 sanctioned.

Location: Ålleberg or Falköping Airport
We will be based at the classic hill Ålleberg (foot launch) or Falköping Airport (towing)
Ålleberg is flyable on the West side (with SSW to NV winds) 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 5km from Ålleberg near the Falköping city.
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:
50 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% participant spots are held for international pilots until 30 days prior to the event according to CIVL rules for a cat2 event.

Registration open: TBC
Fee: 1000 SEK or 100 EUR
.
Trackers:
We’ll provide Flymaster trackers tp all pilots for excellent livetracking, security and scoring.


The competition will be valid if minimum 1 task with minimum 10 pilots participating is done according to the Swedish Cup rules.

License:
Swedish pilots need Swedish P2 + Comp1 (or Comp2 of course) + FAI license.
Foreign comp pilots need of course also FAI license.
If the comp isn't full then swedish Pilots without Comp1 och P2 are welcome to join but will not get official scoring valid for FAI ranking.
