I am Tomasz Hornik, almost 24 years old. I started gliding 7 years ago in Słupsk (north Poland). I have started my competition career in 2013. Since then I took part in many competitions mostly in Poland.
This year I had big honor to get LX9050 with V8 and WiFi from „get sponsored”. I remember my 1st flight with LX9050 in 2015, back then I was dreaming about flying with such avionics in glider and now I literally can’t imagine flying without it! So watch out, because it is addictive as gliding itself!
So far since 2015 I have flown 17 competitions with LX90XX devices. From that 12 of them I have finished on podium and won 6 times. I think that LX90XX is taking big part in my results. Why? It helps the pilot in tactical thinking by the way it shows information on the map and in configured info boxes which can be chosen by the pilot to show only what he wants and needs.
For me LX90XX became some sort of basic avionics nowadays, it something more than just another screen in cockpit – it became an icon. I can’t imagine any new glider without LX90XX and for sure, one day when I will have my own glider inside you will find LX90XX!
Thanks to support from LXNAV I was able to become 2nd Junior Vice-World Champion in Standard Class, win 4th time in a row Polish Junior Nationals, 2nd time in a row win 15m class in Nitra and became Polish Vice Champion in 15m class!
