The standard logger for balloon competitions

The Flytec Balloon FAI competition logger was developed for the World Airsports Federation (FAI), to allow for electronic scoring of ballooning competitions. By now this method of performance evaluation in balloon competitions is the standard for competitions at all levels, up to World Championships. The logger’s highlights are:

  • The display is easy to read even in bright sunlight
  • Long battery life, rechargeable batteries
  • Robust casing
  • High precision and sensitivity of the pressure measurement, and therefore the measurement of altitude and climb or sink rate
  • GPS for accurate position recording
  • Virtual marker drops, goal declaration
  • Fraud protection
  • Easy logger management for officials
  • Transmission of the recorded position and altitude to a computer (USB and optionally Bluetooth)
  • NMEA position data transmission (USB and optionally Bluetooth)
  • In case of defects, all components can be replaced
