 flyWithCE Flight Recorder certifications
IGC Position Recorder
International Gliding Commission (IGC) introduced new class of recorders - position recorders. IGC Position Recorder certificate is issued by national gliding committee and for specific device. Because of that the certification is not worldwide.
On 2nd and 3rd of March 2012 there was and IGC Plenary Meeting in South Africa where they decided that for Silver and Gold badges you do not need extra altitude recorder and that GPS altitude will be accepted. The difference with fully certified flight recorders is that pilot should account 100 meter altitude margin for possible GPS altitude error (for instance 1100 meter gain of height for Silver badge). This new rule will be effective when new Sporting Code will be published (expected October 1st 2012).

To keep the cost low consumer GPS logging device is used. In cooperation with device manufacturer the devices firmware was updated so that it would fit best glider pilot requirements. On the other hand consumer device has some limitations. Device is not IGC certified as flight recorder and does not have engine sensor or pressure altitude sensor. Because of that flights recorded with this device could not be used for claiming national/world records or diamond badge.

The registration procedure is free of charge and easy to do. The only thing is that NAC (National Air Sport Control) accepts the device as appropriate device for Silver & Gold FAI badge flights. Several countries already verified the device so you can trust other countries or perform the tests by yourself. At the end NAC fills out the form which is then sent to IGC.
