Junior Gliding for Under 25s and Under 18s

We are delighted to have been accredited as a British Gliding Association Junior Gliding Centre
This Scheme is designed to encourage younger people (under 25s and under 18s) into our sport.

Okay so it is just for fun!! However gliding offers a diverse range of practical learning ranging from how weather systems work to the nuts-and-bolts of flight.

Gliding is a sport of skill; teaching judgement, co-ordination and self-confidence.

Discounted Membership fees and free glider hire are available for members of our Juniors Scheme, and are features of our already very competitive prices. In addition to this, various grants and funding are available to Juniors.

Juniors (together with a parent or guardian if appropriate) are very welcome to visit us on any Saturday from 11am onward or please email Andreas Jelden, our Chairman and Junior Gliding Centre Coordinator for further information.

Add us to the Curriculum of your School or College

Gliding is a complimentary fit to your educational objectives whether in Sport, Personal development, practical Physics or the Natural environment and biosphere.

We are currently seeking contacts with local schools and colleges to explore ways of working together to add gliding to your list of activities.

Gliding is essentially a safe sport but as with any other human activity, a culture of safety and adherence to operating procedures are essential to maintain a zero accidents record. Our Members and guests should adhere to our Code of Conduct whilst at the Club.
