The intent of this Flying Order Book is to set out the accepted good practices that
lead to safe operations, and communicate them to all interested parties, especially
pilots and those involved in ground operations on the airfield.
These practices and procedures have been established over many years operation at
Husbands Bosworth and also by the British Gliding Association which has collected
good practices from many other clubs and sites.
In the main, the requirements and rules set out here are those that are specific
to the operations of The Gliding Centre, Husbands Bosworth. In developing them,
the intent has been to build on and complement the BGA Laws and Rules and the other
guidance material published by the BGA.
The main references are listed below. Pilots and those involved in ground operations
should be familiar with these, as well as the content of this Flying Order Book.
As all these documents will be revised from time to time, the latest version should
always be consulted for definitive rules or guidance. They are mostly available
from the BGA website - http://www.gliding.co.uk
