Vitorlázórepülő szimulátor - mely a valósághoz nagyon hasonló taktikai döntéseket igényel, nem a manuális gépvezetés a lényeg.
Használati útmutató: Először kattints a fenti képre (applet-re).
Az 1, 2, 3 és a 4-es szám lenyomásával, illetve a lenyomott (ball) egérgombbal tudod a kamera nézőpontját változtatni...
Az Y lenyomásával tudsz felszállni, a Z lenyomásával balra az X lenyomásával jobbra tudsz fordulni.
A szóköz lenyomásával tudsz spirálozni (termikelni a felhő alatt).
Felhőről felhőre repülj és tarts észak felé, 100 kilométerre van a célvonal...
A P lenyomásával tudod megállítani és elindítani a programot.

A szimulátorhoz, Java applet futtatására alkalmas internet böngésző program szükséges és 800*600 vagy 640*480-as képernyőfelbontás ajánlott.

Jó repülést!

Instructions: Click on the applet (above) first. <1>..<4> change point of view. Press <y> to take off. <z> turn left, <x> turn right, <space bar> circle (when in a thermal/under a cloud). Follow the road running north, jumping from cloud to cloud to stay high. <p> pause/resume. Drag the mouse to rotate the camera.

Introduction
Welcome to Flight Club, an online gliding simulator.
The gliders look a bit like hang-gliders. However, imagine them to be paragliders or sailplanes if you prefer; the same rules apply...

 
Circling under a cloud

Thermals
Cumulus clouds are fed by bubbles of warm rising air, called thermals. By using thermals, glider pilots are able fly long distances. When you fly into a thermal you should circle to stay in the lift and climb up to cloud base.

Your vario will start beeping when you are in a thermal.

Ridge Lift
Hills produce lift as the wind flows over them. A glider may ridge soar by flying back and forth in the rising air in front of the hill.

Glider pilots also like hills because they function as reliable thermal triggers.

Your mission
Fly as far as you can. When the sun begins to set the last cumulus clouds will evaporate. So fly fast to maximise your distance whilst the sky is working.

A note on navigation: The wind is blowing from the south. You should follow the road that runs north. You have a compass bottom right, next to your vario.

Points of View
Drag the mouse to rotate the camera position. You may switch between points of view using the number keys...
  • <1> focus on your glider
  • <2> watch the gaggle
  • <3> the view from 5,000 meters above
  • <4> the view from 8km away to the south east


Try pressing <p> to pause the action and then switch between the different points of view.
Dragging the mouse whilst the action is paused gives a 'bullet time' effect.
