The FAI World Grand Prix 2010-2011 was the fourth gliding Grand Prix. The 9 qualifying races took place during 2010-2011 worldwide flying season. The qualifying rounds were held all over the world. The Finals were held in Wasserkuppe, Germany from the 23rd to the 30th of July.

Due to scheduling conflicts with the European Gliding Championships held in Nitra, Slovakia, from 17-30 July 2011, some pilots couldn't attend the Grand Prix Final. Among others, triple and defending Grand Prix World champion Sebastian Kawa did not attend The Finals, instead he went on to win the European Gliding Championships in the Standard class.
