Badges - competitive equivalence

The MGA has always been proud to promote its pilots’ sporting achievements; SA has been represented with honour internationally by our RC Glider Pilots & local events are also fiercely contested in the best spirit.

It is generally recognised that to compete at the highest level within a discipline inherently implies that a reasonable standard or skill has been achieved.  During 2010 the MGA initiated a process to promote "competitive equivalence" to provide a recognition of the skills of our competitive pilots.  We have subsequently trawled through all the records available to us & wish to congratulate the following pilots on their new badges! 

Should we have missed anyone, please do not hesitate to contact the MGA, who on written application by the pilot/club the following rating equivalence will be considered :

Note that the MGA will treat each "sporting equivalence" application on a case-by-case basis.

Thermal (Eagle) National championships

We have trawled through the various records of events and postings to identify as many individuals as possible - but are concerned that not everyone has been recognised.  So if we crashed befoe launching, let us know...

Note that we have not included those individuals who already have a similar or higher rated badge (for example if you are already a Diamond A thermal then a Gold is not listed below). 

Thermal (Eagle) Internal competition equivalence

At this time there are no equivalences for the Diamond ratings - as these include reference to local & international competitions results already.

Badge announcements for slope, chuckie & electric will follow shortly
