Flying over gliding sites

The CAA’s latest safety campaign highlights the risks of flying over active gliding sites in support of the work of the BGA.

A new animation reminds pilots of powered aircraft to check the location of glider sites and the altitude to which a winch launch may operate when they are planning a flight and glider pilots of the importance of reporting.

More information including a link to the BGA’s Winch Cable Warning Poster to download and display is available at

Please share the information with your aeroplane, helicopter, and military flying contacts.
