Hello,
A new starting procedure appeared in the 2020 edition of the glider sport code (SC3 annex A) : PEV start.

PEV Start Procedures
When the PEV Start Option is in use, pilots must record a Pilot Event in the Primary Flight Recorder (“press the PEV”) before crossing the Start Line or Ring. Pressing the PEV creates an interval in which a penalty-free start may be made. The interval begins PEV Wait Time minutes after pressing PEV, and it ends PEV Start Window minutes later.
Two parameters must be published on the Task Sheet: the PEV Wait Time and the PEV Start Window. The value for each parameter must be 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 minutes.

Are there plans to incorporate assistance for the management of this type of departure?
- Introduction of "Wait time" and "Start window" times somewere in the task page.
- creation of a "PEV" button to launch the procedure
- countdown of different times
This will be a plus to reduce the workload at the start.
No need to link LK8000 to the pilot event of the logger. the pilot first pushes on the logger PEV, then on the LK8000 button.
Thank you
Manuel
