Operations during COVID Restrictions.

John Tucker Noticeboard

As a result of the relaxation of the Queensland Government COVID19 restrictions gliding operations continue with some limitations. They are open to all members and will include solo and instructional flights and AEFs since 21st June.  There is now no need to contact the Duty Instructor of your intention to fly prior to attending.

Social distancing measures must be adhered to as well as hand hygiene and the wiping down of glider controls and handles with detergent after flights(see Covid Safety Plan). Do not attend if you are feeling in the least unwell. Do not attend if you have had any contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID case (or their contacts) or have been abroad or to Victoria in the last 14 days ( even if you have done so under permit). You should consider downloading the Government’s CovidSafe app. onto your mobile.

As a reminder BGC MOSP Rules for currency are:

-for pilots with less than 75 hours of gliding it is having flown a glider within the last 30 days.

-for pilots with more than 75 hours it is 90 days.

-have had a satisfactory AFR in the last 12 months.

-have a current medical declaration and be a financial member of both  BGC and GFA.

-can present their logbook to the Duty Instructor.

(NB; it is at the discretion of the Duty Instructor if any pilot requires a check flight regardless of the above)
