Webinar Badge Flying - Mar 19

BADGE FLYING: How to Prepare for and Attain Your FAI Silver Badge
This webinar, presented by soaring coach extraordinaire Eric Carden, is a how-to for badge flying.

This webinar is intended for a pilot looking to earn an FAI Silver badge or to serve as an “Official Observer” to help someone else earn this badge. While specifically about the Silver badge (the first badge in the FAI badge lineup), much of the content applies to FAI performance achievements and Official Observers in general. It discusses the detailed performance requirements of the Silver badge and covers the preflight declaration, the Official Observer, and proof of success. It’s based on the latest FAI rules and points out significant rule changes made in recent years.

After attending this webinar, you will know how to:
- Successfully prepare for your Silver badge as a pilot in command
- Adhere to any recent rule changes
- Prepare your friend for being your Official Observer
