If you have a look at the participation gliders, you can retrace almost the whole development history of Aeros Company: from Stealth till Discus, Combat L and the newest Combat 09 glider which has outstanding flying characteristics and was already certified by DHV.

These competitions are getting more and more popular due to nice place, safe and comfortable flying conditions, plenty of big fields for landing and friendly atmosphere.
The entry fee was 70 Euro (=700Hrn) including retrieve. One towing is 7,5 Euro and you are at 500 - 600m, just in thermal.
Accommodation possibility: a hotel that is 5 km close, or free camping just on the airfield. There are many cafés and restaurants where you can taste the traditional Ukrainian dishes. There is a nice river beach, also not far from the airfield.
There was also a possibility to rent the Comabat 09 glider.

From 16th till 24th of July 2010
