Transition to Gliders Flight Training


Part 61.87 of the FAR’s cover solo flight. Your instructor will review part 91 (flight rules) Part 830 (accident reporting) and the following procedures and operations:


 1 Proper flight preparation procedures, including preflight planning,  preparation, aircraft systems, and, if appropriate, powerplant operations.
 2 Taxiing or surface operations, including runups, if applicable.
 3 Launches, including normal and crosswind.
 4 Straight and level flight, and turns in both directions, if applicable.
 5 Airport traffic patterns, including entry procedures.
 6 Collision avoidance, windshear avoidance, and wake turbulence avoidance.
 7 Descents with and without turns using high and low drag configurations.
 8 Flight at various airspeeds.
 9 Emergency procedures and equipment malfunctions.
10 Ground reference maneuvers, if applicable.
11 Inspection of towline rigging and review of signals and release procedures, if applicable.
12 Aerotow, ground tow, or self-launch procedures.
13 Procedures for disassembly and assembly of the glider.
14 Stall entry, stall, and stall recovery.
15 Straight glides, turns, and spirals.
16 Landings, including normal and crosswind.
17 Slips to a landing.
18 Procedures and techniques for thermalling.
19 Emergency operations, including towline break procedures.

It is not common for student pilots to be permitted to fly cross country in gliders, but provisions are made in part 61.93.


To meet the requirements for the private glider flight test, you will need endorsements for all of the above, plus the items in 61.105:

1 Applicable Federal Aviation Regulations of this chapter that relate to private pilot privileges, limitations, and flight operations.
2 Accident reporting requirements of the National Transportation Safety Board.
3 Use of the applicable portions of the “Aeronautical Information Manual” and FAA advisory circulars.
4 Use of aeronautical charts for VFR navigation using pilotage, dead reckoning, and navigation systems.
5 Radio communication procedures.
6 Recognition of critical weather situations from the ground and in flight, windshear avoidance, and the procurement and use of aeronautical weather reports and forecasts.
 7 Safe and efficient operation of aircraft, including collision avoidance, and recognition and avoidance of wake turbulence.
 8 Effects of density altitude on takeoff and climb performance.
 9 Weight and balance computations.
10 Principles of aerodynamics, powerplants, and aircraft systems.
11 Stall awareness, spin entry, spins, and spin recovery techniques for the airplane and glider category ratings.
12 Aeronautical decision making and judgment.
13 Preflight action that includes – (i) How to obtain information on runway lengths at airports of intended use, data on takeoff and landing distances, weather reports and forecasts, and fuel requirements; and (ii) How to plan for alternatives if the planned flight cannot be completed or delays are encountered.
