BGA Airspace Letter to all UK Glider Pilots

The BGA has written to all glider pilots to remind them that mid air collision risk increases significantly when in close proximity to an airfield. If a glider ever came into contact with a Commercial Transport Aircraft gliding could change forever. Appropriate precautions include:

Understanding airspace.

Planning ahead.

Where necessary, talking to controllers in good time.

Where carried, electronic conspicuity equipment to be switched on.

Moving map equipment to include a file that includes ILS approaches and useful airspace information.
