Unofficial Listing of the Soaring Society of America Awards and Badges: Gold Badges for 1965


The info has all been re-entered by hand, so there are going to be typos.   Please send along any corrections and suggestions for improvement.

Earning an FAI Gold Badge requires that the pilot complete an altitude gain of 3,000 meters, a distance flight of over 300 km, and a duration flight of five hours.   Only one duration flight is necessary to meet the requirements of both the Silver and the Gold Badge.
