If you use release for a flight, it is not required to add this to the declaration. Please refer to the “Performance distance types” SC3 #1.4.4 to check where you may use this option.
If the data file for a Silver or Gold flight recorded by a FR has an error, the OO shall submit a correction certificate with the claim. For Diamond Badges, Diplomas and Records, the declaration must be without error. Please note that an omission is not an error.
Yes, except for the Silver Duration if the entire flight is performed under continual attention of the “OO” from take-off to landing.
You only need to enter your name, glider type and registration for the Silver Badge.
Although no declaration is required for Silver Height and Duration, it does make your “OO” control a lot easier if you have it. Written declarations are invalid.
Since 31st October 2021, we no longer support written declarations. Only declarations made on the actual used FR(s) will be accepted. However, for Silver and Gold badges, an Internet declaration on SSSA myGC App is an option. Please note that the latest made declaration is the valid one.
Yes, make sure the pre-flight declaration is done before take-off and that the logger is switched on a few minutes before take-off.
A Waypoint is point specified by a set of coordinates. A Waypoint may be a Start-point, Turn-point, or Finish-point.
The declaration is the pre-flight entry of data on the FR. It consists of pilot name, glider type and the glider registration or callsign, plus any waypoint(s) coordinates as required by a given soaring performance. If you use more than one FR, they must have identical declarations, or the flight will be invalidated.
