Qualified Glider Pilot (QGP)

The QGP certificate is roughly the gliding equivalent to a Private Pilot’s Licence in power flying.

A QGP is a pilot who may act as Pilot-in-Command of a glider or powered glider in accordance with the endorsements entered in the pilot’s logbook.

A QGP may act as Pilot-in-Command of a glider carrying a passenger provided the pilot is 16 years of age or over. The glider type, launch method and control seat position shall be specified and endorsed in the pilot’s logbook by a GNZ A or B Category Gliding Instructor approved to make such an endorsement.

The training syllabus for QGP can be found here.
