Requesting a forum for ALES (Altitude Limited Electric Soaring

Forum Name:
Altitude Limited Electric Soaring
Aircraft - Aircraft Sailplanes

For electric powered sailplanes which use an altitude limited motor cut-off


ALES is a format which focuses on providing a limited altitude thereby allowing all airplanes of this type to compete without depending upon launching skills. It is a format which is rapidly growing and is now a separate event at the AMA nationals, as well as being flown in numerous contests across the US, Europe and numerous locations around the world. The ALES format appeals to a wide variety of flying skills, and is particularly appealing to new flyers of gliders.

Current threads are scattered throughout the the Soaring section and make it difficult to communicate among interested flyers. A single thread, has already had nearly 95,000 views.

I'm all for it! The existing ALES thread has more than enough topics being discussed to warrant it's own forum. Let's talk it up and see if we can get the votes and get the "Jims" to agree! (I wonder how many "Jims" does it take to create a new forum?).

Yes! This is a fantastic idea.
ALES has brought soaring to Montana in a huge way in one short season.
