LSF Goal and Return Sites

LSF Goal and Return Sites

Part of the League of Silent Flight Soaring Accomplishment Program is the dreaded Goal and Return task. These start with Level III and go through Level V. Level III’s G&R task is a measley 1km (0.62mi), which can be done without the aid of transportation in most cases. Level IV requires a 2km (1.24mi) G&R task, and Level V requires a 10km (6.2mi) run. For the latter two, a car or truck is necessary!

The distances are straight-line distances for the “turnaround” point. You can take any path you would like to get to the point, and then you must come back and land within 200 meters of your start point.
