Gliding Tasks Today

This site shows areas of competition gliding activity and the likely cross-country task areas flown by large groups of gliders. Note that while increased glider activity should be expected in the shaded areas, the routes of individual gliders can be difficult to predict. Gliders generally fly between cloudbase and a few thousand feet below, but may also fly in cloud. The information shown is for guidance and planning purposes only.

Current & upcoming competitions

This is a list of current and upcoming gliding competitions. Note that competition tasks are generally planned early in the day and will often be published from 10:00. However when the weather is unpredictable or not initially suitable for cross-country soaring, tasks details may not appear until later in the day.

If you are planning a flight that will route close to the airfield or planned task area during the competition, you are encouraged to seek information from the competition organisers using the contact details below.
