If you get new gliders delivered (assuming you have somebody qualified to complete acceptance checks etc) there would not be any paperwork problems with the a/c.
Problems with how they are 'organising' the ACO gliding 'organisation' is of course another matter

I had a couple of laughs at the job advert - obviously the 2 'A' levels would make one a wonderful gliding instructor LOL......but they missed out the part which should have said ''bring your own glider'' .
At 2 gliders a year it will take too long to use new gliders to resolve the issue, and unless the organisational​ issues are resolved you will simply have two sets of unairworthy gliders. I suspect most of them will be recoverable, it won't take anything like as long, let's hope the organisational​ issues are resolved
