Glider Towing

Looking to tow a glider operated under the Gliding Federation of Australia (GFA) as pilot in command of a recreational aeroplane? You’ll need a Glider Towing Endorsement!

As an applicant for this endorsement, you’ll need to meet certain requirements. These include holding a Recreational Pilot Certificate, completing the necessary training, and holding a GFA Tow Pilot endorsement, meeting organisational requirements, and demonstrating proficiency in safely operating the aeroplane during the towing process. Towing gliders requires specialised skills and knowledge, and it’s important to meet the requirements for safe glider towing operations. Get endorsed, follow the regulations, and take to the skies as a trusted glider tow pilot!
