Flight operations in gliding clubs is the backbone of our aeronatical culture in general aviation. However, specific risks exist, which we need to address to fly safely.

We do not want to lecture virtually, but provide a proactive approach to flight saftey in club operations—more about this later. So at first some active part for you, a question to answer:

How do you rate flight safety in your club's flight operation?

  1. Driving to the airport is the most dangerous part of gliding.
  2. We stick to all known rules and procedures. Violators will be reprimanded and punished. This eliminates hazards.
  3. We know that errors are human. But we wonder if there is a way to fly safely anyhow.

Or are you a spouse of an active club pilot and are concerned about his or her safety?
