Consolidated list of glider-related FARs available?

Asked by: 3476 views , , ,
Commercial Pilot, FAA Regulations, Flight Instructor

Hi, new here. I am an Army officer stationed in Germany. I added a glider rating to my ASEL, MSEL, and IFR before coming here in January. Flying on a winch with a German club has been a blast! I arrived with 6 hours glider time and now I have 25! That's 97 flights since I started glider training in December. Next month I will be in England for a three-day aerobatic course!


I have decided that I want to pursue a CFIG when I get home next spring and I'll fly as a volunteer instructor with the "local" CAP glider group (2-1/2 hours away from home).


Does anyone know of a consolidated list somewhere of FARs related to glider flying? I don't mind looking myself, but I'm lazy enough to want to "work smarter not harder" since my life is pretty busy.

    I found my own answer. I don’t know if this is a truly comprehensive list, but from the source I’d guess it’s close. Visit the Soaring Safety Foundation http://www.soaringsafety.org/publication/ssf.html and look at the Safety Training Guide. There’s an extensive list of glider-related FARs there.

    Dorris Grove publishes a book containing only glider related FARs.  It’s available from Knauff and Grove.
