Additional Gliding Radio Channels

As previously noted, a number of additional 8.33 channels have been allocated for gliding use. The allocations and use have been approved by CAA and Ofcom and apply with immediate effect.

All pilots are strongly advised to note the updated gliding channels as published in the BGA publication Managing Flying Risk. Please note that the cloud flying channel has changed. Although BGA and CAA wanted to continue with the existing cloud flying channel, Eurocontrol, who allocate frequency usage, could not provide adequate protection. Hence the revised cloud flying channel.
