Hang Gliding and Paragliding competitions are based on tasks.
Tasks are defined by a takeoff, turnpoints and a goal.
Pilots have to takeoff at the defined takeoff area, fly around those turnpoints in a given sequence and land at goal.
We use GPS devices which collect a track log of the position of the pilot during his flight.
This code then interfaces with those GPS devices , downloads the track data and checks if the pilot followed the task and flew around those turnpoints and got to goal.
And then gives the pilot a score which can be used to feed RACE.
RACE is the FAI/CIVL scoring code to be used in Hang Gliding and Paragliding competitions.
