Starting the sim
When game loads, you will be taken to the gps location of the take off.
You'll maybe have to wait a bit until the landscape and the glider is loaded before you can take off
To take-off, hit the 'Run' button or press the spacebar. If the slope is not steep enough, you'll maybe need to keep running for a little while.
When airborn, you can either control the glider with the mouse clicking the buttons, or using the keyboard arrows.
You will be able to use ridge effects and thermals to soar and gain altitude.
The flight instruments can give you information about your flight :
- climbing rate and altitude on the variometer on the right,
- ground speed, ground heading and map on the gps on the left.
Keyboard also allows you to change the view :
Ending the flight
The flight ends when the pilot hits the ground, you will then be asked to save your flight or not.
If you choose to save, you can leave a comment along with the flight to give your impression about the flight.
You will be able to see your track on paraglidingearth from the site page where you took-off.
