use. (A-08-10)

Develop guidance material for glider owners/operators that
describes feasible installation options to aid in the prompt
installation and approval of transponders in gliders. (A-08-

Establish a national transponder code for glider operations,
as low in the transponder code range as feasible, that would
notify air traffic controllers of glider operation/position.

Upon establishment of a national transponder code for glider
operations, as per Safety Recommendation A-08-12, ensure
that air traffic control personnel are informed of the code,
what it represents, and under what limitations the users are
typically operating. (A-08-13)
