Quick Access Links
The BGA website contains thousands of documents. It’s not always easy to find what you are looking for.
Searching the Website
The website page or document search function works well providing you know what you are looking for. Just type the description into the search box, eg ‘Medical requirements’.
Google searches also work well; using Google, prefix what you are looking for with BGA, eg ‘BGA instructor manual’.
Website Forms and Publications Library
All the documents on the website are stored in the website’s library, where you can browse and select documents.
Please note that some of the library categories have a number of sub-categories. For example ‘Pilot Resources’ includes the publications for ‘Aerobatics’, ‘Aim Higher’, ‘Cross-Country’, ‘Disability Gliding’, ‘Examiners’, ‘Instructors’, ‘Pilot Training’ and ‘Powered Flying’.
