Club Class Nationals Glider Eligibility

Contrary to the announcement of 25th January, the BGA Competition Committee has reconsidered its automatic approval for ASW20b and c variants in UK Club Class Nationals and has concluded that such automatic specific approval prior to any IGC announcement is not after all appropriate and is to be rescinded.

However, in a further revision of 2021 Rules to be released imminently reinstating a provision last seen in the 2017 rules, any pilot proposing to fly a glider type that fits the performance range and ethos of club class but does not appear on the IGC handicap list may apply to the Competition committee to be accepted and given a BGA produced but IGC based handicap and reference weight.
