Powered Gliders

The following concern was raised at the AGM regarding powered gliders,
“I feel that we are in danger of mixing powered flight with gliders. It is one thing using a motor to get out if trouble but it is completely different to be able to climb vertically to cloud base and then swoop down across the face of a slope at high speed. Those machines could be used just as effectively on a flat field”.

After much deliberation it was agreed that powered gliders could be used under the following conditions:
1. If the wind speed is less than 10 mph
2. That bursts of power are limited to a maximum of 10 seconds
3. Power to rescue a plane that has blown too far back
