Cool Glider Contest - Thermal Duration - June 27 and 28. All are welcome

Glider Contest - Thermal Duration - June 27 and 28. All AMA members are welcome
This is LISF 1, the first of two Eastern Soaring League Thermal Duration contest weekends hosted by the Long Island Silent Flyers.

We fly this as two one day contests so you can come Saturday or Sunday or both.

We have a large field, plenty of sky and a club that puts on a great contest. The LISF club members do all the work so you, the ESL pilots, get to sit back, relax and focus on your flying.


Ed's loooong range forecast is for beautiful skies, light breezes and lots of lift. So why would you want to miss it?

There will be 4 ESL winches with no retrievers. We pull the lines back with a tractor.

We will be flying Expert, Sportsman and Novice. Novice pilots fly FREE. See the registration site for more details.

We hope to see you there.

Is ESL different than altitude sensing electronic cutoff? I assume it is since a winch is required.

ESL is the Eastern Soaring League. www.flyesl.org I edited the first note to spell it out, thanks for asking.

Think NBA or NFL - it is a competition league. If you visit the web site you can read about it.

This particular competition is for gliders that don't have motors. These are launched with a winch. You can see examples here:

That is me narrating the video. it was shot at our field during the June ESL contest last year.


In April we hosted an ESL ALES, altitude limited electric soaring, contest at our field. That is the altitude sensing electric cutoff event you mentioned.
