AMENDMENT 8 TO THE 1997 LIST (AL 8/97)

DATED 27th MARCH 2005

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.

The list is held at: http://www.newportpeace.co.uk/turningpoints.htm and can be accessed directly through this web reference.

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.

This amendment list - presents all the geographical points without grouping them regionally or into sites.

Subsequent additions and corrections. After this first amendment for the year, no fundamental changes will be made to existing points (such as to the exact position), although small corrections may be made to items such as road numbers or descriptions. Additional points may be added if there is a good gliding reason for adding them during the year.

PART 1 - IMPORTANT CHANGES

Important factual changes including corrections or changes of grid refs and deletion of points.

DUN Dunstable Clubhouse The club have asked their airfield point to be changed to a point on the NW boundary of the field that they have found is more suitable for finishes.

SEN Sennybridge, the road bridge that was the Point no longer exists. The exact point has therefore been changed to the A40/A4067 junction on the E side of the village, about 250m NE of the previous point.
