I am a Telegram bot that ships informations to paragliders aiming to fly in Belgium. I love clouds and wind, maybe we should get in touch on Telegram.


LFA Golf warnings

Know when you can go higher

Live notifications

Flying in Belgium is not easy. Considering our 28 aerodromes, we can easily claim that Belgian airspaces architecture is epic ! But sometimes LFA Golf zones are open and pilotes can go thermaling much higher. Invite me to your Telegram group and I will warn you when these goldy zones are opened, even if you're in a flight.

Use /golf at any time to get the current status.

Chat commands

You can Chat with me directly or through a group chat, use commands and I'll ship you A.I previsions for sites flyability. I monitor 10 paragliding takeoffs on a 10 polling frequency.

I gather data from paraglidable.com and openweathermap.org. If you request it, I'll deliver you an artificial intelligence analysis for the paragliding sites that are currently flyable (wind orientation measures at request time).

How much is it flyable?

Where is it flyable now ?

Use "flyable" command

With this command, i'll show you which sites are currently flyable (at the time you ask for it, this might change with weather evolution during the day). just input : /flyable

syntax : /flyable

Where do I have a better chance to go XC now ?

Use "xcable" command

With this command, i'll show you where you'll have a better chance to go XC (at the time you ask for it, this might change with weather evolution during the day). just input : /xcable

syntax : /xcable

Meteo

How is the weather now ?

Take-off real time meteorological measurements

Two steps to get the most recent meteorological measurements at takeoff. juste input : /meteo

openAIR files

Belgium Paragliding Cup (BPC) emits airspaces in openAIR format. I check BPC's Google Drive for openAIR files every 10 minutes and keep track of the last 10 files.

You can get it at any time by issuing /oa command.

List of available commands

You can get help at any time by issuing /help command.

Why using Telegram

  • Because it is secure
  • Because it does not belong to Facebook
  • It is customisable
  • Other paragliders use it
