RACE-THERMAL-211-EPZR
May I invite you on a gliding trip to Poland & Slovakia highest mountains (Tatry Wysokie / High Tatras), see all the highest peaks while ridge soaring through the whole main mountain range and then return back home safely.

This is a mixed thermal and ridge soaring flight.

 

Introdiction

You will start at famous polish gliding place - Żar mountain (70km from Hight Tatras), location of polish mountain gliding school (dating back to 1936) and home airfield of laederboard_table

RACE-THERMAL-160-EPKO
Third native MSFS2020 thermals-only race in location where I often fly in real life (see photos from location below).

Start gate min height is 2296ft (700m).

Finish gate min height is 984ft (300m).

Other waypoints have no min height.

All waypoints max height is 6233ft (1899m).

Set date to 15 of July 2021 around noon.

This time wind is stronger (strength raising from 5 to 12 knots with height) from north-east.

RACE-THERMAL-78-EPPR
Second short race that uses only native (built-in) MSFS2020 thermals for gliding.

This time with proper start, finish gates and waypoints so you can actually complete it and have your track recorded as competition results in Albatross.

For this race I made weather just a tiny little bit more difficult - cloudbase is quite low, I  added some light wind (4kts) from SW and made weather less obvious - as in real life less developed clouds won't provide lift - for the best lift try the most towering clouds - they won't always be straight on the nav line.

RACE-THERMAL-104-EPKZ


Amazingly it is possible to use thermals below clouds for soaring in MSFS2020!

This race doesn't use any Albatross/Kinetic Assistant programmed thermals (no csv file) - just pure MSFS2020 weather which means you can look for thermals under the clouds,

and do not need to use any additional software for flight.

I tested that there are thermals under clouds and no updraft in areas w
