Is it possible to sort flights by glider model on the OLC? by Soartech
Seems like this would be great info to have when comparing your glider (and piloting) to others of the same kind. Is this possible? Do they let you? Or do you have to sort through every competitor in the world until you find ones with the glider type you want to examine?
