Junior Nationals 2016

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Junior Championships which will take place at Tibenham from 20th-28th August. As in past years, competition training in two-seater gliders will also be available to young pilots to help prepare then to fly in a rated competition in subsequent years.

Anyone can apply as long as their 26th birthday falls after 2016. A Silver badge is required to fly in the competition but pilots without a Silver can enter now in anticipation of gaining their Silver before the competition starts. If a pilot is uncertain about whether they will gain their Silver before the competition starts, they can apply for both the competition and the training,

Applications for both the competition and the training should be made by 30th April 2016 via the BGA web site at http://legacy.gliding.co.uk/juniorsentry. Applications from previously unsuccessful applicants are welcome. Questions about the competition and two-seat training applications should be directed to Andy Cockerell – ls4a535@gmail.comJuniors
