Unofficial Listing of the Soaring Society of America Awards and Badges: Silver Badges


The info has all been re-entered by hand, so there are going to be typos.   Please send along any corrections and suggestions for improvement.

The Silver Badge is intended to develop the self-reliance of the new soaring pilot.   Earning the Silver Badge requires that the pilot complete a flight over a straight course of at least 50 km, an altitude gain of at least 1,000 meters, and a duration flight of at least five hours.
