Entries to the Junior Nationals are now closed (however, late entries are still being accepted). Please see details below.
Entries to the 2 Seat Training are open now.
Please contact us with any questions.
To fly in the Junior Nationals you will need your Silver badge and an FAI Competition Licence. The entry fee for this year is £100 (for UK pilots) – it is likely that this will be partly sponsored (around £50-75), however we will confirm this nearer the time.
Not get your Silver yet? Don’t worry, you don’t need it to enter, you’ll just need it by the start of the competition. Enter anyway and we’ll get you into the competition when you’ve completed it (numbers depending), or potentially give you a spot on the 2 Seat Training if you don’t get it in time.
If you would like to compete in the Junior Nationals but are unsure whether you will complete your Silver badge in time for the competition, we recommend that you submit an entry for the competition and also apply for the 2 Seat Training
To apply for/renew your competition licence, do this via the BGA website. Entries received from people without a valid FAI Licence will not be given priority, so please do this before entering (if you don’t have your Silver, don’t worry about this bit yet).
Entries for the Junior Nationals closed at midnight on 31st March 2019. However, you can still use the above link to submit a late entry. Priority will be given to those who entered on time.
We will release an entry list in late April. Please bear with us – this competition is run by volunteers.
2 Seat Training
For those not ready to fly in the competition we offer Training flights in 2 seaters with coaches. This is a great opportunity to get to know what competition flying is all about.
The 2 Seat Training is aimed at those who are close to competition level (i.e. probably have Bronze and XC Endorsement), but we invite applications from everyone. We make an allowance for age when choosing successful applicants. We know you can’t complete bronze until 15 & XC endorsement until 16. Don’t forget, that doesn’t stop you having it all signed off ready to send to the BGA on your birthday. Whatever your level, if you’re interested in the two seater coaching then get applying
Unfortunately we cannot give places to everyone, so places will be awarded to those who we deem will benefit the most from the experience.
Applications will be accepted until midnight on 31st May 2019. We will contact successful applicants in late June.
