Soaring Magazine Milestones Guidelines

Milestone entries are welcomed for soaring pilots who have soloed, received their private pilot rating, added on the glider rating to a current power rating, and any additional ratings added to a current glider certificate. Due to the increasing number of Milestone submissions being generated by the membership, the Soaring staff asks that the following guidelines be followed:

Text: Individual entries are limited to a minimum of 50 words and a maximum of 100 words per pilot. Entries with multiple persons being mentioned are allowed the same minimum and maximum per person mentioned. Identify everyone shown in photos. Insure that you the text includes; Who, What, When, and Where. Text must be written in the body of the email, no attached text files. Please include a headline.

Photos: Must be digital, high-resolution .JPG image files, submitted in the same email as the text file (as a separate .JPG file, not embedded in a page of text). The smallest image file size that we are generally able to reproduce in print is about 150 kb, at 300 dpi. Entries with image files smaller than 100 dpi will be returned for correction and re-submission. Generally, the photo files directly from the camera works best. Do not send links to online services such as Shutterfly, send the image file.

Date Format: September 10, 2015 ± not 9/10/15, not Sept. 9, 2015.

Changes or Re-Submissions: Resubmission or changes to an entry for any reason require a new text file and a new photo file to be submitted via email.

The Soaring staff makes every effort to run all Milestones entries in as timely a manner as possible. The very soonest to expect a Milestones entry to appear is 90 days after submission. Much longer delays can be expected after the end of the soaring season.
