Airspace and Obstacles
Obstacles in Switzerland
This links shows most of the obstacles in Switzerland:
It looks difficult - but in our area we have only 1 cable, which always disturbs (please note that it has more cables):
Penaltys for airspace
- 0-Tolerance at official airspaces
- 1 point / m at wildlife-airspaces
- GPS altitude
In our area we don't have many restrictions. Maximum altitude is everywhere 3960m AMSL (~13'000ft AMSL)
Airspace for competition
Make airspace visible
- During the competition, the airspaces can be viewed at airspace.xcontest.org using the country "COMP CH".
Service for XCTrack pilots
Pilots using XCTrack as flight software can activate the airspaces with the XCTrack airspace function. To do this, select the region "COMP CH" in the "Airspaces and Obstacles" menu and click on update.
Important 1: To ensure that the correct airspaces are loaded, the region must be updated every day before takeoff.
Important 2: Do not activate additional regions. Especially "Switzerland" should be deactivated during the competition.
Note: The region "COMP CH" will only be visible in the XCTrack at the competition.
The following map sections are informative only. Only the airspace file and airspace.xcontest.org (country "COMP CH") is valid.
