Flight Logging Action Group

FLAG (Flight Logging Action Group) is a new BGA Working Group, formed to look at developing flight logging and data capture & management systems for gliding clubs. The requirement came from clubs requesting solutions. Many clubs have systems that have been devised and managed by individuals at their clubs. Several factors are now coming to the fore including the age of the originators, improvements in technology which have reduced geographical factors, greater levels of development-readiness at clubs, etc. In response, the BGA has held two initial meetings with interested and experienced club treasurers and volunteers. FLAG is a BGA Development Committee initiative, co-ordinated by a small steering group, with small working groups focussing on specific work areas – currently work on fact finding and spec development. (Potential options for solutions are not expected to be identified for several months yet.) Many hands make light work, so if you would like more information, or would like to get involved, please contact alison@gliding.co.uk. We will be keeping clubs updated by email during the year.
