Balloon Live Contest 2020Dieblich, Worldwide15 July 2020 - 30 November 2020
An event for both pilots and officials to improve their skills in competition flying. Pilots are given two weeks to complete a flight with a given tasksheet in their own time and wherever they want to fly. Tracks from the Balloon Live app will be used for scoring to get the competitive juices flowing.
The Balloon Live Contest is a decentralised balloon competition that allows participating pilots from different countries to compete against each other in challenging and interesting task settings while flying in their area and country. For the start of the 2020 edition, the flying area is limited to the territories of the following 4 countries: Austria, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Pilots from all countries can participate. 4-6 tasksheets will be available to fly over a longer period. Only one scoring flight is possible per task sheet and per pilot. Some task sheets may allow for multiple attempts.
Practice competition for pilots due to the local event being postponed until next year.
