Definitive List. The definitive BGA list including the latest updates and any `Stop Press' items can be accessed through a link from the BGA web site: http://www.gliding.co.uk.

Responsibilities. The BGA has prepared this data in good faith but takes no responsibility for its accuracy or how it is used, for instance use by pilots in airborne navigation systems. Users are advised to check such data, in particular for proximity to other air activities or areas with airspace restrictions.
Airspace. Points with airspace considerations have the hash (#) annotation. A single hash # is a warning about proximity to airspace rather than the point being in an airfield ATZ or other zone for a notified activity. Points with a double hash ## should only be approached and over-flown if the organisation responsible for the airspace concerned has been contacted and the use of the point has been positively agreed for the flight concerned.
Important factual changes including corrections or changes of grid refs and deletion of points that should no longer be used.
CTM (Chatham) - Delete, Due to the New Southend Control
CVY (Canvey) - Delete, Due to the New Southend Control Zone.
DAE (Danbury E) - Delete, Due to the New Southend Control Zone.
SOM (Southminster) - Delete, Due to the New Southend Control Zone.
SPY (Sheppey) - Delete, Due to the New Southend Control Zone.
HB7 (HusBos Finish E) - Delete, No longer used, replaced by new HB4.
WIT (Wittering Tower) - Delete, Gliding Club closed and Wittering is still an active RAF airfield.
This is where there is no change to Position. It is used where descriptions, road numbers or layouts have changed, or where heights ASL are being corrected because originally they were estimated rather than calculated exactly.
