Pilot Currency Barometer

by on 20/03/2014

The Pilot Currency Barometer published by The British Gliding Association may be intended for Glider pilots but is just as relevant to us Paragliding pilots.

The level of risk varies considerably dependent on many factors including the pilots experience and currency. Other factors include fitness to fly, familiarity with equipment, understanding the operating environment (including the weather) and being fully conversant with relevant airspace restrictions as well as being aware of other airspace users needs.

Using the Pilot Currency Barometer
Add up your hours and launches for the last twelve months.
Put the figures on the barometer.
Where the line drawn between them crosses the white line, read the appropriate advice for the box colour.
Example shows pilot with 25 hours and 12 flights.
