All members of BGA clubs, including those operating under EASA requirements, are subject to BGA requirements and guidance. All pilots are urged to remain familiar with the detail.

‘BGA Requirements and Guidance’ – formerly described as ‘Laws and Rules’ – have been developed in consultation with member clubs over many decades  with the aim of  meeting the practical needs of gliding clubs and their members. Objectives include clarity, effective risk management, and supporting compliance with applicable National and European regulation. The detail is regularly reviewed and updates are promulgated through BGA news.

The BGA requirements and guidance as formally approved by the membership in March 2015 are documented below.
