GA Rogue's Gallery
by Alastair Mackenzie
A gallery dedicated to all those GA pilots who cant read a map and blunder over Burn whilst winch launching is taking place. Burn GC has had permission to winch launch gliders to 3000 feet AGL since 1st April 2016. This fact was notified by Notam for 90 days and now appears in the UK AIP. Unfortunately the change missed the 1:500,000 map publishing cut off date by 4 days but the CAA charts still clearly show gliding activity at Burn (and have for the last 28 years) and winch launching to FL2.1 so there's no excuse for GA aircraft flying directly over the site at low level.
