World XContest 2016 [deutsch version]

World XContest - česká verzeWorld XContest  - français versionWorld XContest - version espagnolWorld XContest - english versionLiebe Pilotin, Lieber Pilot

Wie möchten dich auf der Homepage des XC Systems World XContest 2016 herzlich willkommen heissen.


5. 12. 2011 - new feature AIR BUDDIES

From this moment you will meet with new handy feature on XContest - Air Buddies. Under the map and height profile in flight detail you will see first 3 related flights according to the "similarity" with the current flight - it means how much fly these pilots together or even if they meet in the air. You will be able to show more such flight immediatelly inside the page, or click on the show on map together link - this action will move you to the new page, similar to the one which you already know from HotSpot detail.


4. 12. 2011 - Rules for 100k+ Club precisely

We received more questions about new rules for Chocholate Club 100k+, especially about the evaluation of single takeoff site. So let's look at it closer:

We will accept only takeoffs from our database (it means the takeoff which you usually choose from the select list in the flight claim form, step 2). Concerning flights from not-yet-created sites: we will create them, in case it IS regular takeoff place. Other cases will be considered as the nearest takeoff from our DB, or will not be counted for the Club in case of any doubts. Takeoffs "from the air" will be evaluated in the same way.

So in short: do not try to switch on the GPS unit in the air or choose new obcure places for takeoff in the areas where there are other regular takeoffs, only to win chocolate:-)

1. 3. 2010 - The Dutch cylinder race

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.

Menü rechts: für Benutzer (Piloten), beinhaltet Hinweise zu Seiten, die Piloten benutzen, um sich anzumelden, Flüge einzugeben, ihr Profil zu ändern usw.


Wir sind davon überzeugt, dass euch die unmittelbare Zusammenarbeit mit dem neuen XContest System und seinem einfachen Erfassungssystem volle Zufriedenheit bringen wird. Wir hoffen, ihr werdet das einzigartige Angebot an Flugdetails, interaktiven Karten und weitere Einrichtungen geniessen.
