Default The Eastern Soaring League 2012 Contest Calendar

The Eastern Soaring League 2012 Contest Calendar

Electric sailplane pilots may wish to attend one of these events to watch how pure gliders are flown in a regional contest format.

There are two divisions in the Eastern Soaring League.

TD - Unlimited Sailplane launched off winches. TD is typicall flown in a man on man format.
HLG - Hand Launched Gliders - Typically flown under FAI F3K rules using discus launched gliders.

Both divisions are reflected below. Note that this is a draft and is subject to change. For the latest, check the ESL web site at www.flyesl.org

Typically there is an Expert Class and a Sportsman Class flown at each contest. There is also a Novice program for pilots new to ESL contests who may wish to give it a try. Naturally Experts tend to fly higher end birds while Novices may be flying Easy Gliders in TD or 2 channel kit built DLGs in HLG. You can read about the ESL classes here:
