The British Gliding Association has developed a number of useful training aids aimed at improving winch launch knowledge and safety.  The information is available through the BGA Website and the GFA acknowledges and thanks the British Gliding Association for permission to use this gliding safety related material.

GFA winch launching standards, procedures and requirements are contained in GFA Operational documents and where they differ from those of the BGA pilots must ensure that operations are conducted in compliance with GFA operational standards, procedures and requirements.
