Glider Pilot Medicals for Power Pilots

Power pilots who also fly gliders usually use their power licence as evidence of their being medically fit to fly.  However, the British Gliding Association's medical requirements are currently less demanding than those, for example, for an EASA PPL or LAPL.  For solo gliding (but not instructing) a current driving licence will suffice but the BGA website states 'limitations applied to any other aviation licence also apply to gliding unless otherwise authorised.'

A power pilot may become subject to a temporary suspension of the power flying licence by the Aviation Medical Examiner while some medical problem is addressed but still be allowed by their medical advisers to drive.  In such circumstances an approach to the BGA with details of the condition may possibly lead to authorisation for solo gliding.
