Contest Entrant Checklist

Posted by on April 11, 2020


In addition to all the many glider- and trailer-related items you must bring, here are a few important ones that sometimes are missed. Note that by far the best way to deal with the first 3 is to make images of them and email these to the Contest Manager when you register.

  • Pilot license
  • Proof of SSA membership (valid through the end of the contest)
  • Proof of current glider liability insurance
  • Emergency tracking device – an ELT, or a satellite tracker (e.g. SPOT or InReach). Note that a PLB (personal locator beacon) does not satisfy this requirement.
  • FLARM-compatible anti-collision device (required for National contests)
