    Gliding is not conducted in an environment where participants are in close proximity by default, apart from 2 seaters and for training. If we get solo pilots back in the air, the sport will revive much more quickly once further safety can be guaranteed.

    Solo gliding is by definition the ultimate socially distanced sport. There is no reason why it could not safely be resumed.
