Level 21 will be again a short inverted flight, not too difficult. (Difficulty: 2/5)
Level 22 is a surprise (Diff: 5/5)
Level 23 could be a simple cross-country flight (about 75km, levels must stay short) with medium conditions (Diff: 2/5)
Level 24 and 25 will be a X-country as stated above (low conditions and blue thermal) (Diff: 3/5 and 4/5)
Level 26 will be a tweaked FPL to simulate english weather ;-) very low clouds, weak thermal (Diff: 4/5)
Level 27 will be your FPL (I've to finish it ;-) (Diff: 99/5)
Then will come acro tasks. (Diff: easy to hard)
By "will" you can read "would" or "could" as it's [edit: *not*] definitely decided.

The difficulty level is not linear but it all depends of the skills of each pilot. Some will find x-country flights very easy, others (like me) will have hard time :oops:

For the list of participants, have a look at the results!

No, "pervert volunteer", which means something entirely different... in French. :wink:

BOD1 wrote:...have a look at the results.

OK, that's far better than I thought.

I'll see if I can come up with something for #23, 24 and 25 with increasing difficulty.
Use them as you see fit.

It's a terrible dilemma, isn't it? :shock:
I'm glad I sent you the .ftr file, as proof that it can be done. :D

Hi,
The XP Challenge is really a must, very interesting and instructive. It helps me improve my performances.
Some levels where very difficults for me, it would be of interest, in the results table, to know the number of trials we made for each before succeeding. For me, its about 10 to 20 times for some! I would like also to have debriefing for each level from the candidates.
I think that some tests are really NOT TO DO PRACTICES. I re-read the tutorials and my RL flying manuals, when applying the good practices some levels are franckly impraticable!
Merci et Chapeau BOD1

Level 21 is available!

--> jfcl:
Because XP levels are flown off-line, I can't count how many trials pilots made to succeed.
And of course, some levels are here just for fun, to do some practices we can't do in real life ;)

Strange thing with level 8

Postby CLP260 » Fri Mar 28, 2008 10:32 am

I think it was 8... The one where you have to thermal to cloud base in 4 minutes 15 seconds

I kept completing the task at 4' 17'' seconds, or rounding the top gate the wrong way at about 4' (and not being able to get back in 15 seconds. I was trying to fly smoothly and stay centred in the strongest lift.

In desparation I changed units from imperial to metric (thinking I'd better get used to the idea...) and then the next attempt was 4' 05'' and not particularly well flown.

Is there a rounding down that is hindering imperial?

Definitely! :D

This is done to encourage people in certain parts of the world to finally adopt this scientifically correct metric system, instead of measuring distances and speed by the length of their body parts and knots in a rope, and even driving at the wrong side of the road. 8)

But seriously, I wouldn't know.
Never did imperial.

What do you mean, We drive on the left which is right, And if you dont like measuring in feet then it's only because you have little one's (feet that is). :lol: :lol:

Sorry, but even the wording is scientifically correct.
Right = right.

No, that's why on the continent we use meters. :mrgreen:

I just passed the level 19, it was really a hard task for me, about a hundred gliders broken! what should we do with the pieces of wood?
Cheers to all

17 was proving tricky, so I decided to do silver first. It's still tricky, so I might just have to do gold next :)
