DSGC Card system

Alongside the BGA Badge system, the Devon and Somerset Gliding Club operates a rating card system for post-solo pilots which provides a structured method of monitoring and maintaining safety and flying discipline through a comprehensive checking system. It also details the steps in your progress from early-solo to self-briefing.


Early-solo pilots requiring daily checks


At least 25 solo flights and must refer to Duty Instructor for daily flight briefing


Bronze Badge, including at least 50 solo flights


Silver Badge, Self-briefing pilot
