What happens to the information submitted to the BGA office?

Each ARC (or Annex II C of A) renewal is subject to a quality check using a Standard Operating Procedure. The glider data is checked. Related inspector and ARC signatory validity are checked. The ARC issue is recorded on the CAA database. The documents are scanned and batch submitted to the CAA for their records. The renewal detail is entered into the BGA database including related airworthiness support validity. The transaction is recorded. Payment is made to the CAA.


Fees

The BGA fee includes the fee payable to the CAA.

A credit card payment form may be completed and added to your submitted paperwork.
