Introductory Flight Pilot

The UK ANO provides the opportunity for BGA member clubs to use pilots who are not instructors to carry out introductory flights where the passenger pays for the flight.

The BGA requires those pilots carrying out introductory flying where the passenger pays for the flight to hold a BGA Introductory Flight Pilot (IFP) endorsement.

CFI’s can carry out the BGA IFP course at their club.

Any suitably qualified glider pilot may train for a BGA IFP endorsement. Please note that the IFP is not an instructor and the IFP endorsement is not an instructor rating.

IFP minimum qualifying requirements are described here.

IFP and course coach information is available here

IFP course programme and record of training is available here.

The BGA IFP application form is available here.
