The fourteener challenge is an award that recognizes pilots who have used their soaring skills to fly above 55 Colorado mountains, with peaks over 14,000 feet.

The competition is open to any pilot and any glider regardless of club affiliation. All flights must be completed within the competition period. No declaration is required but an IGC flight log must be published on the OLC. The organizers may verify that your glider passes within a radius .25 statute miles drawn from the official peak coordinates.


This award is given to a person who has made a substantial contribution to the furtherance of the activities of the Society and the sport of soaring in general.
