Massima quota sgancio HEIGHT PROBLEMS 2.1 The 1% rule – height loss is limited for tasks under 100 km (SC3-4.4.3b) For distance flights less than 100 km, the maximum height loss cannot be more than 1% of the distance flown. No margin is allowed – exceeding 1% invalidates the flight. Be especially aware of this when the finish point or the possibility of landing is at a lower altitude than the start. A Silver badge distance flight that is exactly 50 km can have a loss of height from start to finish of no more than 500 metres. A 60 km flight is allowed 600 metres and so on up to a 100 km flight. For pilots using altimeters that display altitude in feet, Table A below will be of assistance in determining the maximum height loss for these short flights. TABLE A Maximum allowable height losses for distances less than 100 km km ft km ft km ft km ft km ft 50 1640 60 1968 70 2296 80 2624 90 2952 52 1706 62 2034 72 2362 82 2690 92 3018 54 1771 64 2099 74 2427 84 2755 94 3083 56 1837 66 2165 76 2493 86 2821 96 3149 58 1902 68 2230 78 2559 88 2887 98 3215 If you are planning a Silver distance flight using the rule that allows distance to be claimed from one leg of a longer flight, should note that the 1% rule applies to the total distance flown (if less than 100 kilometres), not just the leg of the flight that is more than 50 kilometres. However, to be cautious, you should use a start height that will allow a valid claim even if you landed just after the 50 kilometre leg was flown. Remember that you can select a position fix in the flight recorder data as a remote finish. See paragraph 4.4. If you plan to use such a finish, take care that the 1% rule is not broken. 2.2 Height penalty – for distance flights over 100 km (SC3-4.4.3a) For flights greater than 100 km, there is a penalty on the claimed distance if the loss of height exceeds 1000m so that there can be no benefit to deliberately starting a task with excess height. This penalty, now 100 times the excess height loss, has increased over time to keep pace with the increasing performance of gliders. If a loss of height is 1257 metres, for example, then the distance flown is reduced by 100 times 257 metres or 25.7 kilometres.
