The BGA wants YOU to try gliding
The British Gliding Association (BGA) has launched a national campaign to encourage powered pilots to try gliding.
“The choice of flying powered or non-powered within General Aviation depends on what you hope to get out of your flying, and to a certain extent what you are willing to put into it,” said Pete Stratten, CEO of the BGA.
“Gliding is a great way of broadening handling skills and airmanship, and discovering the thrill and passion of pure flying and soaring flight. It’s incredibly satisfying to use the freely available energy in the sky to fly cross-country or to simply climb in a thermal after launching.”
