Laws & Rules
The BGA is the national governing body of sport gliding. Gliding takes place under a mix of national, retained-EU and self regulation. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is the UK aviation safety regulator.
‘Laws and Rules’ details applicable law as well as self-regulation through BGA Operational Regulations and associated requirements.
Please note that ‘EASA aircraft’ are now known as ‘Part 21 aircraft’, and ‘non-EASA aircraft’ are now known as ‘non-Part 21 aircraft’. BGA documents are being updated on a rolling basis.
