Where has it gone?

Clicking the 'Pilots' link on the main website reveals a page with a big unstructured list of links. This new Wiki is in part an attempt to address that and produce a more coherent structure. But maybe you knew where your favourite link was, but now where it is now? This page will tell you what has gone where. As far as possible links are now in a relevant section of this Wiki.

Many more links! See below

Most of these were to other gliding clubs, various national organisations, and manufacturers and their UK agents. Links are forever changing and Google is your best friend!

A couple of sets have, however been preserved in so far as changes allow - some entries no longer exist and have been pruned. These links were all correct on the 29th December 2020 but may change in the future.
