The BGA is carrying out a lot of work on its website at the moment. The main URL is still http://www.gliding.co.uk/ but many of the old links within the website are no longer valid. The links on this page have been updated today, so they all now work. In addition, I have added a link to the main BGA Members’ Area in the bottom right margin of this page. Please also note that a search for “Laws and Rules” on the BGA website will no longer work, as they are now called “Requirements and Guidance.”
The BGA has now issued its 2015 Accident Review. You can click to see a copy on the bottom right of this page, or use the link below it to go directly to the BGA website.
