- We would like to announce close partnership between XContest and Cross Country magazine. First issue of this cooperation is here:

Enter your flights in the XContest and you could win a free subscription to Cross Country magazine, or a DVD of your choice.

As part of our partnership Cross Country is offering free prizes to those that participate in the league. Just before each issue of Cross Country is printed, the names of three pilots who’ve entered scores in the last two months will be randomly selected by our computer. Prizes for the winners of the different categories will be announced later in the year, but in the meantime you don’t need to be a champion to be a winner, so get those flights logged.

Estructura Básica:

Menú izquierdo: contiene referencias a páginas con información acerca de vuelos, pilotos y ranking de clases particulares. Adicionalmente podrás encontrar reglas y F.A.Q.
Menú derecho: para "usuarios", contiene referencias a paginas en cual el usuario (piloto) podrá usar para registrarse, enviar vuelos, actualizar el perfil del piloto, etc.
Creemos que el sistema XContest es bastante instuitivo y la forma sencilla de registrar vuelos sólo te proporcionará placer. Esperamos que disfrutes del nivel único de detalles de vuelo con mapas interactivos y alguna otra función especial.

Meta principal del proyecto XContest:

La idea principal del sistema XContest es la de proporcionar a los pilotos la mejor y más simple competición de cross country online
posible. Juntos con esto, nosotros queremos proporcionar toda la información de vuelos y pilotos. Queremos que la información más
importante de cada vuelo esté presente para todos, sin ningún software adicional.
Nosotros somos miembros del grupo de trabajo de FAI/CIVL para crear un sistema internacional único, esto significa crear una interfaz única
entre los servidores de XC. Ahora estamos discutiendo los detalles básicos y reglas.
