Australian Special Requirements

The Records Officers use SeeYou for record validation and also use the WGS-84 ellipsoid (ICG) for distance calculation. (Tools - options - general - distance calculation)

Australia does NOT ALLOW foreign Official Observers to officiate any flights flown in Australia , a Australian OO must be used.

Australia does NOT ALLOW flight of a glider after night. Night is defined as the end of evening civil twilight which is 20-30 minutes after sunset. Any flight that has the glider landing after night begins, regardless of the country in which the flight was made, will not be homologated. The time the sun sets can be determined from the following URL time [ext]

Flights by Australian Pilots in foreign countries will be recognised as AUSTRALIAN RECORDS. Flights in Australia will stand as NATIONAL RECORDS.

For World record attempts, only flight recorder evidence is acceptable. (Extract from Official Observer & Pilot Guide)

Please do not send information on a floppy disk, use a CD or DVD if the information is being sent by mail.
