New League for New XC Pilots

Jugdeep Aggarwal is keen to set up a league for more junior pilots with the aim of informally teaching pilots how to fly Cross Country at our local sites. The league will be a similar format to the Northern California Cross Country (NCXC) League but will be for pilots flying EN A and EN B gliders, and who have at least a P3.

The Sprint league will be similar to the NCXC league but aimed at more junior pilots. Tasks would be smaller and mainly involve touring the local area without necessarily leaving the valley. No SPOT device required nor Ham license (unlike for the league).  There would be full GPS scoring and tasks with defined routes. Routes would be set so that there was an easily landable field within glide. 

There is a questionnaire set up to help tailor the Sprint League to the pilots intending on coming out. If you are interested in this format, please fill out the questionnaire!

Note that the deadline for the survey is December 31, 2013. Once the results are tallied, Jug will set up a discussion forum to continue to refine the details of the league. We'll post more info as it becomes available.
