This is a new initiative to support those involved with helping to maintain gliders at their club. It’s an ideal step for anyone planning to be a BGA inspector.
The course aims to give more knowledge (especially with the unavoidable paperwork) and confidence at a practical level whilst building experience performing permitted pilot owner maintenance.
On completion of the course, maintainers will be able to work in compliance with the legal ‘pilot/owners’ maintenance framework and be able to judge themselves if they have the relevant skills to perform all pilot/owner maintenance tasks. Read about pilot/owner maintenance here.
