SAFETY PAYS! A proposal to the International Gliding Commission
Keywords:Training and Safety
As a long term expert safety adviser to the IGC, OSTIV is offering this paper about the need to improve safety in gliding and proposals to enhance this on an international level. The indispensable role of the IGC is emphasized. The importance of international gliding competitions as market places of state of the art equipment and best pilots as role models for most other gliding pilots and clubs is underlined. The use of IGC-sanctioned gliding competitions as an instrument to improve safety is argued. Three proposals to enhance this are expanded and discussed.
