Safety

“Even the most eminent persons are subject to the laws of gravity.” –Winston Churchill

Pilots should be familiar with the BGA's Safe Winch Launching and Safe Aerotowing guidance. Be aware of your pilot currency and follow Managing flying risk.

All Safety newsletters, which are published at irregular intervals, can be found alongside the other club newsletters.

To report a minor incident, use Flysafe. You can also download Flysafe user manual from there. Anyone can report an incident or near miss, and no blame is apportioned. If an aircraft is seriously damaged or someone is injured, the incident or accident must be reported: Contact the safety officer.

In case of an accident, use the SGC Emergency Response flowchart, followed by the Emergency Action Plan. Copies of both are available at the launch point, the clubroom and the office.

COVID-19

“Be safe, be smart, be kind” –Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director General

In addition to these guidelines, please be aware of Scottish and UK government guidance and laws.

All members are expected to book in using Click 'n' Glide, non-members must use the Check in Scotland app, available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store (Help with Check In Scotland). Alternatively, you can scan the QR code at the club and follow the instructions. If you can't use the app or QR code, the office can check you in.

In line with government guidelines, instructors, students and anyone intending to fly with another pilot in a 2 seater should take a lateral flow test and have a negative result, before coming to the airfield. Lateral flow tests are freely available from pharmacies or can be ordered at order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-test.
