BGA Airspace Letter to all UK Glider PilotsThe 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:
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.
