Many pilots come to Fiesch to fly cross country, as the potential to achieve big distances from here is enormous. Check out the XContest uploads on 7th August 2015 – more than 100 flights logged, totalling over 16,000km, including 84 over 100km, of which 22 exceeded 200km.
Unless stated otherwise, all the example flights in this section are mine. I have tended to choose trickier flights rather than cruises at cloudbase well clear of terrain, as they are more educational than those made in easy conditions. Links to Doarama/ayvri visualisations and XContest records are included to show how the routes have actually worked in practice. Unfortunately, the 2018 migration of Doarama to ayvri resulted in a loss of the facility to show only parts of uploads, so I have had to add directions to fast forward to a specific point in many visualisations to start at the relevant section of many flights.
