Default The Eastern Soaring League 2012 Contest Calendar



The Eastern Soaring League 2012 Contest Calendar



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:
