Have you already experienced the thrill of Gliding with the Air Cadets?
Do you want to…
- advance your flying skills?
- fly cross-country?
- do glider aerobatics?
- race in gliding competitions?
- or just fly for a bit of a laugh?
However you want to glide, we’ve got it covered with gliding centres across the country that are geared up to provide you with what you want.
You’ll have access to some great advanced training to help you take your gliding to the next level and, importantly, you’ll experience the fun and excitement of flying with a group of like-minded people.
Will it be different?
Flying with the Air Cadets has given you great flying training within a set programme. Now YOU can set the programme and the limits! You decide where your flying is going and how fast you get there.
The British Gliding Association has set up a network of Junior Gliding Centres (JGCs) to help you get what you want out of the sport. Each centre is part of a leading BGA affiliated club and is just the place to meet up with other young pilots, develop your gliding skills and have a great time. Everything is set up so that you’ll feel part of the gang from day one and can get straight down (or up!) to flying and having fun.
No worries– we’ve all had that problem from time to time. While there is no such thing as totally free flying, there’s a lot of help out there and we can help you get at it. Want to know more? Look here.
Is it all about flying?
No! There’s a great social scene both at club level and within the UK junior gliding community. Everyone mucks in to help during the flying day and afterwards there is always something going on.
At national level, we arrange competitions, flying days and parties just for the sake of having a party! There’s a real buzz and loads going on. Come and join us.
Cadets are reminded that if they participate in this activity that they are not covered by either the ACO’s insurance scheme or MOD’s vicarious liability, and do so as a private individual. They are therefore to ensure that they have their parent’s or guardian’s permission before taking part.
