I am struggling with the latest "Glider Winch Launching Symbols" as they are cluttering the map significantly while many of these launch sites are private and/or even closed and don't have any airport symbol attached like some public glider or microlight sites. Furthermore the symbol that is used for them is way too big for this purpose while it does not provide a good idea where such site is actually located. I would welcome either the possibility to disable them or use a small icon instead like any other airport on the map.

Would you mind providing a screenshot of an area you feel is particularly badly affected by this, for discussion? I'm aware we have changed a number of these symbols in Germany for this week's chart update.

Jesus, do these field all have the same altitude box height or are they also up to different altitudes?

Yes, all of them are from GND up to 3000ft.

Ok, many of those in tomorrow's chart update appear as hang-gliding symbols instead of the winch cable symbology we currently use. That means that they can be hidden by disabling sporting areas, though we would not recommend it.

The reason they are included is because they do winch-launching, and the cable is a hazard.

Looks good after the update as I can disable sporting areas. Thanks for that!
