BGA Motor Glider Instructor Rating (MGIR)

Following a review, it has been agreed to simplify the BGA Motor Glider Instructor Rating (MGIR) by merging the old Group 1 (GRP) and Group 2 (wood/fabric) into a single TMG group.

As a result, instead of three groups there are now two BGA MGIR groups – the TMG Group and the Self-launching Sailplane Group.

Any MGIR holder who is in the ‘old’ Group 1 or Group 2 is deemed to be in the TMG Group. There is no need for existing MGIR holders to take any action.

The MGIR requirements and the MGIR application form have been updated to reflect this small change.
