Possible Tasks

List of All Tasks without Maps

Cross Country Training

Many of these could be flown in a 2-seater with an instructor. Several of these afford the luxury of remaining within a safe gliding distance of the airport [or other landable spots] while permitting practice in holding a heading, finding, entering and leaving lift, and then proceeding on course to predetermined checkpoints. These are all prerequisites for a cross country flight.

Ridge Tasks for Fun

Many of these have long jumps between gaps in the ridges. As with other tasks a significant amount of planning may be required.

50km

Many of these could be flown in a 2-seater with an instructor first before going solo. You are encouraged to discuss flight plans with an instructor beforehand. The badge requirement is for 50km only, so a one way flight is all that is needed. (You can land at the finish airport). However this list shows Out & Return of 100k which is not necessary, just more convenient to come back.
