Hi Alan,

You are correct, as long as you fly on a registred flying site of course.

Now.. That does not stop you passing the A cert anyway :)

The rule:

Operating an SUA greater than 4kg weight
To operate an SUA weighing greater than 4 Kg will require proof of training from an approved body to a level approved and acceptable to the IAA. To register an SUA greater than 4kg the IAA website will remind users that they will require an approved level of training.
MACI members can automatically achieve this requirement by having a current A Certificate from the MACI training scheme for the appropriate category.
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Hi all,

Please note that the A&B certs for gliding will most certainly go ahead at the next MACI meeting in January :)

I would say that even if you have your A plane cert, do the A glider one :) Just for fun, and I believe everybody can achieve it without breaking a sweat!  :)

Also, do the B! Even if you don't plan to fly in public meetings. Can be a good personal challenge :)

Go on then, put me down for a test. ;) Goodness knows I can hardly make a bigger fool of myself than I already am, can I? :) As long as you don't ask me to do a "Blender." :-[
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.
