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
