CBC Long Jump Challenge

The Calgary Balloon club presents the CBC Long Jump Challenge for 2020-2022.  Long Jump 2020-2022 will be effective September 30, 2020 – April 15, 2022.  The Long Jump is an opportunity for pilots to work on their weather skills to determine if the wind conditions are more suitable for a long distance flight compared to a regular one hour flight.  What are the upper winds? How packed are the isobars in the direction of flight?  Where do you launch in order to have the best flying and landing conditions? This is also an interesting event for the crew to be involved in and to be challenged to be there when you land.

The club has received enough entries so the challenge is on! You can still enter by submitting the entry fee of $20.00 to Dirk Luxen.  The forms and rules can be found here and in the August / November “Champagn-E-Vents”

Contact Linda Then with any questions.
