Hi,
I found this task that can also be used for the silver badge. It might good to add it on the Badges and Diplomas page.

Unfortunately not:
Performances to accomplish in order to obtain silver badge:
* A flight on a straight course of at least 50 kilometers.
* A duration flight of at least 1 hour.
* A gain of height of at least 1000 meters.

In this task, we have a triangle of 50km, that is not correct.

:oops: I missed that part :(
Nevermind, I managed to do your task yesterday. That's a very good flight for beginners like me. I really enjoyed it !

Thanks!

Nevertheless, this task can be used for training by beginner, not very far from airfield and TP are always visible.

I don't know about the Condor version of Silver badges, but in real life
the silver bagde reqires you to have a duration flight of 5 hours.

I am sure that BOD1 knows it very well :), but I personally understand and support BOD1 decision - there is not so many people, which are able to fly with condor 5 hours (from health and family reason :wink: , not technical skill). If anybody is able to fly 2 hours in Condor, I am sure, he is also able to fly 5 > hours, it depends only on quality of his "back side"... :)

Exactly Cadfael!

Like in real life, we offer you to pass some tests to obtain your badges and diplomas. Challenges have been adapted to simulation reality and don't fully correspond to FAI challenges.

And in any case when you start flying the diplomas you will find yourself flying 5 hours quite often and even 7 and 9 hrs. :roll: :roll:

Most people in RL do the 5hrs on a ridge which is really not in the spirit of the test. The original test setters intended you to go on a long cross country and maybe collect a Gold distance at the same time. In RL I did my 5hr in thermals (our site had no ridge) and it was real battle in UK weather even on a good summer's day. I would have gone C/C but I wasn't checked out for it. I was the following day though!

Agreed.
In our country, you won't even notice them from the air when you fly over our highest "mountains".
And if you do, you already lowered your landing gear.... 2 minutes ago. :?
Still, I manage to fly >5 hours on almost every flight.

Well i did my silver a few weeks ago but never saw anywhere to download or link to the silver badge, going for the gold next, just wondering how to get the height and which task to try it on.
