Since the beginning, Condor has been used by clubs and businesses to construct full size simulators as shown in the picture opposite. That one is the British Gliding Association simulator, and they rent it out to their member clubs for a small fee. But that is not the only way. Condor has a comprehensive set of training lessons built in, and anyone can teach themselves how to fly in the comfort of their own home on almost any PC with a joystick. We have many stories of this from our community.
The lessons are split into 4 phases:
- Preflight Check
- Effects of Commands
- Winch Launching
- Aerotow launching
- Traffic pattern(circuit) and landing
- Winch launch failure
- Thermal Soaring
- Ridge Soaring
- Wave Soaring
- Upslope Winds
- Starting task and navigation
- Speed-To-Fly - MacCready Theory
- Final Glide
- Stall Turn
Its great flying Condor in single player mode, and some amazing flights can be made.
But the most fun in Condor is joining a multiplayer flight and racing. Having the other competitors around you in the air is exhilarating.
There are many online competitions to join running 24/7. see the Serverlist Here for races running right now.
You can of course create your own races for you and your friends, and run them on a private network or online and advertised in the serverlist for anyone to join.
Races follow standard real world race formats and classes. Starts can be pilot selected, or GP “regatta” type. Condor has scoring built in, so at the end of the race its clear who was the winner.
