Annotations: Nowadays, the Salzmann-Cup plays a similar role as state championships in Germany,[15] which usually take place as central championships in one federal state. The translations of the names of the German federal state championships ("Landesmeisterschaften" and "Blockmeisterschaften") are not strictly literal. This table contains no rankings in double seater competitions and no rankings in individual disciplines (known, unknown, free). The definition of the advanced category may vary slightly in different glider aerobatic competitions.
