Team XC Soaring

Welcome to cooperative soaring...safari with us


TeamXC is flying some soaring safaris on Condor. We started Oct 1 from Tipella, Canada (40 nm north of the border, the furthest point north on the Cascade Range landscape) and are working our way south over the weeks to Rosario, Mexico, the most southern airport in the Baja California landscape. Safari here means that each task’s southern-most airport becomes the start airport for the next task which will generally go further south. The path south is undecided and will evolve over the safari; it probably won’t be very direct. We don’t skimp: we will have at least 8 tow planes following us :)

We fly the safari Fri 9p ET on the "TeamXC Group -ignore gates-" server which appears on public servers about 25 minutes before flight time. The best server list (IMO) is virtualsoaring.eu/serverlist because it’s easy to read and can be sorted by name, but you’ll also find us at www.condorsoaring.com/serverlist/ . We hope you’ll get your headset on and talk with us on Discord. Please upload your tracks to skylinescondor.com.

More cooperative soaring...fly racing tasks with us

We'll be flying racing tasks Mondays 9p ET. But cooperatively...we make plane icons visible for the max distance (16 nm), and talk on Discord to share what's happening in our flights and have fun. The race will appear on the server "TeamXC - Race" about 25 minutes before the hour, and have a join time of 35 minutes, so you have to join by 10 minutes after the hour. For those who miss the first join time you can fly the task on a server called "TeamXC - Late Race that will appear about 10 minutes after the hour and have a join time of 20 minutes. Please upload your tracks to skylinescondor.com.
