BGA safety team hosted by the AAIB

Safe gliding keeps things fun. The BGA safety team includes a small group of volunteer investigators led by Chris Heames. In the rare event of something going wrong, the group supports investigations with the aim of avoiding a repeat.

Thanks to the DfT’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch, members of the BGA safety team were recently hosted by AAIB investigator and glider pilot Afandi Darlington, which included realistic training that will further improve the support the BGA team provides to gliding clubs and the AAIB.
