Flight Recorders are IGC-approved devices to record pressure altitude and GPS position and altitude. The
approval level of a given Flight Recorder (FR) specifies its use for badge and record claims.
A declaration is the pre-flight recording of pilot name, the glider identity, and the waypoint(s) coordinates as
required for a given soaring performance. This is entered into the Flight Recorder prior to the flight.
For Silver and Gold Badges, you can make use of the Internet declaration facilty on myGC app or the MyGliding portal.
