Das 257km FAI Dreieck von Johann Tockner
Several Nova-pilots made the most of the great weather on Thursday and Friday last week and to complete some huge flights.
Johann Tockner flew a 257km FAI triangle with his Mentor 2, and beat the existing record for EN-B gliders (Robert Muggli, Mentor 2) by 17 kilometres.
Mario Mayer (222km FAI) exceeds the 200km FAI mark as well quite easily. This year only Mentor2 pilots were able to fly FAI triangles with more than 200km in the standard-class. (EN-A and EN-B)
Together with Mauro Pianaro (213km, Factor2) and Raul Moras (243km, Triton) there were seven pilots who flew more than 200km FAI-triangles on Thursday.
