A number of clubs are now offering UAS training to power pilots. It is proving popular and can bring in income and new members. There are resources available on the GFA website to assist clubs to implement this initiative.
I believe one of the most satisfying aspects of this training is that it demonstrates that Gliding can raise the standard of safety and spin awareness across all areas of aviation. It is an area where we as glider pilots can showcase the value of our training and systems to whole aviation community.
Additionally at our club we have gained new club members from every course that we have run.
