Managing Risk

While lip service to Risk Management is granted throughout much of UK GA these days the creation of a truly effective safe operating culture is patchy. Those who operate independently of flying clubs and simply rely on their own ‘common sense’ and those clubs who settle for no more than insistence on high visibility garments are probably furthest from an effective safety culture. Because gliding is necessarily a group activity at least so far as launching is concerned and because it enjoys a long established and dynamic governance in the form of the BGA the safety culture is probably further advanced here than in any other sections of GA. The BGA publishes amongst its Laws and Rules a useful document on ‘Managing Flying Risk Guidance’

Although some of it relates only to gliding much of it has a universal application throughout GA. It repays reading by anyone interested in operating safely whether in relation to just one aircraft or to a whole organisation.
