  • A list of off-field landing sites and a list of airfields inside flight area are also available :

    The off-field landing sites data and coordinates are for information only and in no way can the organizers or the land-owners be liable in case of accident.

    For some areas there is an agreement with the owner, for the others there isn't, thus no guarantee relative to safety of landing may be given.

    Some fields are unusable at certain periods of the year (high crops, crops stocked on site, etc.). Prior flying and walking inspections are essential for some zones.

    More complete information (officially agreed areas, photographs, precautions, fields information, procedures) will be available on site in a special booklet.

    The pilot-in-command is solely responsible for the preparation and the carrying out of the flight. Therefore it is always the pilot's responsibility to choose an appropriate emergency field to make a safe landing.

    Thanks to John Leibacher, who made a great job creating and maintaining a Worldwide Soaring Turnpoint Exchange, you can find these turnpoints, airfieds and off-fields landing sites altogether in files of suitable formats for almost every GPS unit, logger or flight computer as well as a map and even sunset times !

  • Depending of formats, some changes had to be made to the name and/or number of the points. Whenever possible, the official number of turn points or at least its two last digits appear, as ID or appended to turn point name, to avoid mistakes in selecting turn points.

    In most files, turn, start and final reporting points have numbers between 1 and 199, landing sites between 201 and 299 and airports between 301 and 399.

    Some information is lost in certain formats and competitors have to check official list for missing items (for example to know which points are turn points and which ones are only start or final reporting points).

    Beware that in some formats (for instance : Zander) coordinates are given in degrees-minutes-seconds instead of degrees-minutes-1/1000 minutes : this may lead to a difference up to about 20 meters on turn point position, thus competitors shall round turn points with a sufficient margin to avoid penalties or disqualification.

    Consult John Leibacher WGC'97 Official Turnpoint List for more information on formats conversions and changes notification.

    Although these files are supposed to be as accurate as possible, each competitor has to check what actually is in his flight recorder or flight computer ; organizers cannot be liable in case of error in these files, which are provided for your convenience only.

    Paper documentation distributed by Organizers, as well as possible corrections specified at briefings, are the only authorized reference.
