Sailplane and Sky

On the first day of the Brazilian Gliding Championships - held in Luis Eduardo Magalhaes - Claudio Schmidt won the day with his Arcus M - with an hourly average of 156 km/h!

The competition organizers had set a five-hour AAT with a minimum length of 492 kilometers and a maximum distance of 839 kilometers. Claudio Schmidt eventually flew 801 kilometers in just over five hours, thus making the most of the task and enjoying base altitudes of almost 4,000 meters. After seven days of competition, Claudio Schmidt took second place overall behind Henrique Navarro, who won the Brazilian Open Class Championships in his Nimbus 4.
