Thames Valley Hang Gliding Club
BHPA statement - COVID-19
We had hoped that we might be able to advise that flying locally was permitted, and legally it is. But taken in conjunction with the pressures we are seeing on A&E and ITU Departments, it does seem that BHPA advice to all our pilots, powered and unpowered must be that for the duration of this lockdown, members must refrain from flying.
TVHGC Committee regrets that no flying is permitted on any TVHGC site until the current government and BHPA advice and rules change, at which time we’ll of course review.

TVHGC is a large BHPA club in the south of England for qualified pilots run by its members. With 500+ members its one of the larger coaching and flying clubs in the UK. All our pilots are qualified with to a minimum of BHPA CP (Club Pilot) rating or above. We have some gorgeous Hang Gliding and Paragliding sites with agreements to fly in Wiltshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
