Great idea! Glad this is coming back again and this time with some more useful features we didn’t have before.
What is the cross country event?
It is basically flying an aircraft for a long distance. So basically a flight like KOLD-KOPF with stopovers could be called cross-country flying.
Ok, good to know
I’ve got a question:
If I don’t get accepted as an Airalympics IAB Judge, could I show up at an event and spectate?
Space permitting, spectators are allowed.
