The Spanish distance record (256 km) was set five years ago and to date no-one has improved on this distance. This year, as part of the XC Candelario SiXtema Central that will take place from 15 to 22 July, the country's leading pilots are meeting and the competition organisers are optimistic that the record can be broken or even exceed to 300 km.
At Niviuk we are not just positive, we want to rewarding the first pilot that exceeds 300 km with 1 euro per kilometre flown, 2 euros if the pilot is flying a Niviuk wing.
Participants have seven days to achieve this and the competition's GPS tracking system will be used to validate each pilot's flights. Different take-off locations may be used depending on the conditions: either from Candelario or from Pedro Bernardo (Avila) and Cabezabellosa (Cáceres).
The organisation has also organised a fly-in for non-competing pilots, as well as tandem flights for visitors who wish to experience flight for the first time.
