Instructor Courses and Seminars

Experienced pilots looking for Introductory Flight Pilot courses, or BI courses, or a Full Rating assessment, or MGIR assessment should discuss that with their CFI and contact their Senior Regional Examiner who can help identify the available support. If that is proving difficult, please contact the BGA office. Full details describing these qualifications and their requirements is available here.

The BGA facilitates various instructor courses and seminars throughout the year.
