Tenth anniversary of annual FL is almost here

It’s true, though it is hard to believe FL is celebrating its first decade.

It is tenth years ago when the aero-club from Frýdlant nad Ostravicí started the recovery from a two and a half years of forced break caused by a closed airport. Airfield was closed in period from September 2004 to June 2007 when the pilots and parachutists had to settle for asylum in surrounding airports.

After a two and a half year break when the airfield was finally open again few clever brains got together and made a goal to organize glider competition as a memory of the last regional race that was held by Svazarm in 1988. The renewed competition first year was held in July 2008 with eleven one or two seat crews.

The first as all the following years were a clear success and we believe all crews have a lot of beautiful memories to remember and that you will come to Frýdlant nad Ostravicí to share the memories with us.

Similarly as in preceding years the competition will be held in three classes:

  • Combi class
  • Adrenalin Grand Prix club
  • Adrenalin Grand Prix 18 meters

As in every year there is something new, this year all three classes will be included into „IGC Pilot Ranking List“. There is only one condition that there will be a minimum of ten competitors in the specific class.

We have also opened “FL-Facebook” open group for all competitors, their fans and friends. We would be very glad for any of your memories and glider flyover photos. Although there will be a lot of Czech don’t be worried to post in your language.
