Juniors Weekend at the Mynd

The DG500 visited Midland Gliding Club a few weeks ago to fly with junior pilots from across the country as part of the UK Junior Gliding winter series. We managed 150 launches over the weekend, and around 70 juniors were able to experience flying from a new airfield.

Supporting young people getting into aviation is one of the club's key aims as a BGA Junior Gliding Centre. We will be hosting the first of the new Summer Series events at Aston Down in May, which will focus on training and development for junior pilots looking to achieve their bronze and cross-country badges.

Many thanks to the club and the committee for your continued support of UK Junior Gliding.
