BGA and FAI Sporting Badges


Once trained as a qualified pilot, soaring and cross country experience naturally leads to gliding sporting achievements. Most clubs can provide training/coaching to help qualified glider pilots recognise and achieve their potential in this fascinating and endlessly challenging sport.

Recognised gliding achievements include height gains, distances and speeds around closed tasks. Where these meet the qualifying requirements and following submission of an application, they may result in the pilot being awarded specific gliding badges and diplomas.

Full details including the qualifying requirements are described at Sporting Badges and Diplomas.

Application forms are available here.
