14 - 16 years old? Want to learn to fly, for free?
Hi, I’m Seb. Back in
2014 I was 15 and applied for the BGGC Cadet sponsorship scheme. I had my first flight with an instructor in April and by July I was solo!
BGGC is a great club to be part of, everyone is friendly and it’s a great environment for learning new skills. As well as learning to fly, I was shown how to launch the gliders using a winch — I even learned to drive the club vehicles saving me money when I turned 17 and started driving.
If you’re interested in learning to fly before you drive! — Check out the links below. No qualifications needed, just enthusiasm and drive!
