The Proving Grounds platform provides a unique, low maintenance approach to member development.

Pilots fly fixed tasks and email their traces to a customized ‘bot’ for their club which returns time & average speed for successfully flown tasks automatically.

Pilots record their specifics on magnetic slips, then order the slips from fastest to slowest on beautiful, stainless steel task boards.

All you have to do is define the right tasks for your club. We ship you task sheets (laminated and loose), ranking boards, magnetic slips, a holder for the task sheets, even some felt tipped markers. All that’s left for members of your club is to fly a task and record a result – for years to come.

Turn your glider pilots into soaring pilots and retain new members!
