The British Gliding Association will consider "very seriously" any recommendations made following a crash in the Cairngorms.
Mr Russell was trapped in the wreckage of his glider
The pilot, John Russell, 64, was trapped for trapped for more than 24 hours in the wreckage of his glider.
He was found near Braemar in Aberdeenshire on Tuesday following a search covering 1,000 sq. miles.
Mr Russell was not carrying an emergency homing device which could have given out his position.
Keith Auchterlonie, of the British Gliding Association (BGA), said: "Had the pilot been carrying one of these devices, he would have been found more quickly.
"But the disadvantage with these things is they can sometimes go off by accident, causing unnecessary searches."
He added that the BGA would consider "very seriously" any recommendations from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch investigation.
Mr Russell failed to return to the Deeside Gliding Club near Aboyne on Monday, prompting a search involving two helicopters, three RAF Tornados and mountain rescue teams.
