The pilot response to Aeros winter race is realy amazing. We allready reached our maximum number of competitors! There are still 10 vacancies in competition which the Aeros company will grant to special pilots - as it does every year.

For those who did not registered or payed in time - thank you for your interest in competing on AWR 2017, you can stil come and fly with us as a free flyer.

The rainy, cold and mostly unflyable part of the year has begun. Fortunatly there is just few months from now, in march 2017, when the new edition of Aeros Winter Race will take place. It is the 8th edition!

The organizators are getting busy allready - to prepare everything to host the best pilots in region - and this region is filled with european and world champions, so we expect a top qualitiy meet once again.

We will published all info here, so stay tuned!

The compeition ended in the best possible way - with a lot of pilots in goal. The winner today was Primož Gričar followed by Peter Neuenschwander and Franc Peternel. Overall winner is Primož Gričar second is Franc Peternel and Matjaž Klemenčič on third. Great success for Slovenian pilots and of course the "German Slovenian" Primož Gričar!

Prize giving ceremony

At the moment pilotes are somewhere at 2/3 of a 95km task. The condititons seems very good with some cumulus clouds on the course line. We expect many pilots in goal.

Today we have a similiar weather situation as yesterday, a bit different wind situation - but still winds are staying low and from SW directions. Lift is forcasted a little bit batter than yesterday, but still no clouds though we see some yesterday. The launch place for today will be at Kovk the official transport will be at competition office at 10 to load the gliders and will be leaving until 10:30. The task briefing on launch will be at 12:00.

At the evening we will have a closing ceremeny - as soon as we get all the tracks and print out the results.

Today's task proved to be a tricky one. Two turn points were out in the flats and they were not easy to get. Special 1st "flat" turn point sent to the ground almost half of the field. So nine pilots were clever enough to get to the goal, with Manfred Ruhmer first, Franci Peternel second and Primož Gričar third. All in all the task and flying it self make (almost) everybody happy.

Regarding the weather condidtion we set 113 km long task, combining ridge racing and flatland flying. The pilots are now somewhere half throught the task. It's not an easy task, so we hope to spot some gliders approaching goal soon.

Today we finnaly have no more burja wind - what a relief.We are going to Lijak launch place again - goal will be at Pizzerija Anja so official transport will leave ASAP from there competition office. The task briefing at launch will be at 12:00.
