Was wondering if anyone can shed light on this topic, as I have a few gliding hours as it is, I decided to go do PPL first for my CPL and I would enjoy getting into gliding again.
Any help appreciated, I know the gliding syllabus changed a short while back.

Final word from RAASA, but in the meanwhile this might help a bit?
