NEWS FOR 2009:

SPOT ----------
This year things will be even better.  We've just made a partnership with Global Star and we will be providing SPOTs units to be used at the event (with no charge) for the first 15 pilots to register at the comp. They will be followed up live, all over the world in Real Time.

For those who don't know SPOT yet, it is a small satellite personal tracker, that send pilot's position (latitude,longitude, altitude and time) during all his flight, via website, SMS messages and e-mails, making your cross country flights safer and much more confortable, because we will know your exact position with GPS precision, at all times, anywhere, via satellite.

LONGER SEASON ----------------
Due the extreme long flights that Quixadá is providing  yearly, we decided to extend the XC season for ono more month before the XCeara, for those who wants to stay for a longer period. That means that we will start offering you pilots, the structure for the XC flights since October 20th.  It will be the “XC International Meeting 2009”: From October 20th to November 20th, our best retrieve team will already be there to provide pilots, good support for their long XC flights.
