19th - 27th August 2017

The Bristol & Gloucestershire Gliding Club is proud to host the 2017 British Junior Gliding Championship.

The entries for the Junior National and two-seater XC coaching are managed directly by the BGA and UK Junior Gliding.

Anyone can apply as long as their 26th birthday falls after 2017. As usual, two-seater competition training will run alongside the competition. You can enter the competition even if you do not have your Silver badge yet, but you cannot be given a place until you have completed it. If you are not sure whether you will get your silver before the competition, you can apply for both the competition and the two-seater training. The two-seater training course is intended to prepare young pilots to fly a rated competition solo in a subsequent year. Places are limited. Although any worthy applicant will be considered, the majority of successful applicants have Bronze & XC Endorsement completed & some solo soaring time.

Applications for both the competition and the training should be made by 22nd May 2017 via the BGA web site. Applications from previously unsuccessful applicants are welcome.

Competitors should go to the Juniors Nationals RoboControl website.

Questions about the competition and the entry process should be addressed to the Junior Gliding Team and two-seater training applications should be addressed to Ed Foxon orAndy Holmes.
