The BGA is developing an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) with the aim of achieving approval during 2014. This will permit clubs to continue with training glider pilots under EASA regulations.
Those responsible for managing training at their clubs, including of course CFIs, will be instrumental in helping their club comply with the ATO requirements. It will be extremely helpful all round if there is an opportunity to discuss ATO issues between those who will be delivering this stuff and those currently engaged in designing the system to be compliant!
So the BGA will be holding an ATO workshop event at a number of locations during the coming winter before fine tuning the various systems that have to be in place ahead of the approval process in 2014. The the first one, was held here at Lasham on Sat 16th Nov.
