Midland Gliding Club is formally accredited by the British Gliding Association as a Junior Gliding Centre.
Junior Gliding is dedicated to promoting the sport of gliding for young people. If you are a Junior pilot, ie a pilot aged 25 or under, the information on this webpage will be helpful.
There is a full programme of both flying and non-flying events for young pilots organised across the country. These events are aimed at a variety of experience levels, and offer a great chance to socialise with fellow junior pilots.
For young people, gliding is even less expensive. At the Midland Gliding Club, fees are charged at cost while launch costs are reduced by almost half. While almost all clubs offer discounts for young members, junior pilots also have lots of opportunities to fund their flying with a range of scholarships and bursaries.
