Prizes announced! LX avionics in conjunction with flywithCE have provided the main prizes - the flywithCE Personal Flight Record and associated software. This self contained device has many uses, and can be conveniently carried in your pocket. It is ideal for those who occasionally use club gliders without a flight recorder, or instructors moving from aircraft to aircraft. Power pilots can use it too. It displays your flight on a Google Earth background (we've just studied one pilot's field selection skills using such a trace). Even photographers can use it to geolocate their images.
