Airtribune app: (livetrack + we get pilot logs)
It's MANDATORY to get and use the app. It will be used for check in to the event, live tracking and also to report back and for retrieve.
PLEASE download it in now (you also need to register an account on www.airtribune.com) and try it out and get used to it and try the livetrack before the comp when you go flying.
Please also check all buttons in the app and you'll see the Swedish West Cup as a upcoming event for you. Let us know if you have any issues to get it working and we will help you out.
We will double check at the comp briefing that everyone has the app.
The scorer/meet directors will then also be able to download the tracklogs (TLs will be uploaded automatically to airtribune!) and this makes scoring really simple for us.
