It is part of the culture of gliding that club members work together on the airfield to help each other fly. It is also important to know that the club is a members’ (i.e. not commercial) club. That means that every member contributes voluntarily to the running of the club in some way, shape or form.
Members take their turn every few weeks to undertake a duty of some sort. Students keep the log of flights, solo pilots drive the winches, senior members supervise the launch point and the training is done by experienced pilots who have become qualified as instructors.
