The highest achievement in the League of Silent Flight is the attainment of LEVEL V in the Soaring Accomplishment Program. Level V requires completion of the following tasks.

Over 100 members of LSF have completed these challenging tasks and are known and respected worldwide as outstanding RC model sailplane pilots. A plaque commemorating their achievement is on permanent display in the lobby of the Aero modeling Museum at the Academy of Modeling Aeronautics in Muncie, Indiana
