Yesterday's online flight was again a nice flight. After two outlandings the last two month after a short while this time we flew the whole time.

Next month we will have a return task, it's much better to meet after the flight than to land somewhere far away ...

Again we were only two, I hope that in the coming autumn and winter we will have some pilots more.

Thanks to David for flying again with me, it's always nice to fly together

The lazy days are over soon. Tomorrow 1. September starts the new task H. We will have a lower cloud base and a high inversion height, so large and many clouds. High flat activity and streeting, normal thermal strength and width. A short test flight with a full ASW20 showed that the conditions are much better than I expected. But we will have some month again for worse conditions ;-)

Task type is "2 turn points", so we have to fly around 2 turn points (28 % rule) and return to the start airport.

Tasks on the server are

GTA from Murfreesboro
NFL from Deer Lake
NorthGermany from Wunstorf
NWPoland from Leczyca
URY from Santa Bernardina

All airports are bigger ones, so it should be easier to find the way back without PDA.

As always you can fly offline whereever you want.

Last month we have had some changes. Upload of the igc file happens now directly on Vintage Series website, the result is calculated immediately. From the uploaded flight you can open the flight with one click on SeeYou, that's a very nice tool with statistics and my favorite, the 3D playback.

We added a new category (will not call it class) with ASW20 and LS3a, very interesting to fly, but the Grunau Baby will remain my personally favorite ;-). Now we have 4 categories, until now with 3 different leaders in the actual task. That is very good.

Autumn is coming, hope to see some more competitors next month. The first one has already come back after the IRL summer season. Very nice! All are welcome

Last week for task H, Saturday 1st of October comes the next task, task I. I'm a little bit surprised how varying the weather of task H is. On my account are 4 outlandings in 8 flights until now. A statistic of one flight with the best lift of 4,4 m/s and an average climb rate of 1,5 m/s says everything. Difficult to calculate and in combination with the low cloud base, the time limit and the need to return I will call it challenging. But it's fun nevertheless.

Thursday 29th of September will be the next multiplayer flight, 18:30 UTC, task H on NWPoland from and to Pruszcz Gdanski. Task type is again 2 turn points, description of this task type here in this thread on page 2 (15th of June) (sorry, don't know how to create an exact link to a single post in a thread ;-) )

All are welcome to fly online or offline with us.

Have a nice weekend all!

Task H is finished now, task I is running. There we have an out and return with a cloud base of 1200 m and weak but very wide thermals. Looks like it will take a little patience.

In the category "Blanik" we have an exciting head to head race, category "LS3" has started in the middle of the series and is open.

Thanks and congratulations to all competitors.

All are welcome to try the Vintage Series, it's never too late

Maybe the most exciting month on Vintage Series is over now. We got a new competitor, Antti (ARU), welcome to the series.

He competed in 3 of the 4 categories and won all 3. Very well done. Won the Cirrus category with an amazing flight at the last day. Brad (81C) needed a second place in Cirrus category to win that category overall, and he got it with his last flight some minutes ago, very very close to Antti.

Interesting to see the statistic of both, Antti with an average climbrate of 1,9 m/s and a glide ratio of 34, Brad with a climbrate of 1,5 and a glide ratio of 38, both with the Standard Cirrus. Different flight style, nearly the same result.

Congratulations to all, that was great!

Task J is started now. The time limit is changed, it's now 105 minutes for all planes in all categories. With preparation time you will need not more than 2 hours for a flight with a competition time of 1:45. That is a good solution for all with not too much time for using Condor.

After task J we will have the last task K of the 2022 series in December and January, because of Christmas two month.

Finally an announcement to the next series 2023. In that series we will integrate the BaleIT Vintage Series Championship, it's an overall result over all categories. The winner will get the title "BaleIT Vintage Series Champion 2023" and a prize money up to 5000 NOK (round about 500 EUR / USD), depending of the number of competitors. More informations about that later.

If you are interested to become the Champion 2023, you are very welcome to try the Vintage Series in the last two tasks of the 2022 series to familiarize yourself with the rules. Meet us on discord to get answers to all your questions.

The last week in task J is running, last chance to try the task type "Return". 1st of December will start the last task K of the Vintage Series 2022. I promised a good weather. A higher cloud base, no turbulence and good thermals will for sure get the SG 38 out of the hangar. That task and the Series 2022 will end 31.01.2023.

The season 2022 was used to create and try the rules and to build the tools. And of course to have fun flying it.

Next season the BaleIT Vintage Series Championship will be integrated, here the invitation
