Entries to the 2 Seat Training are now open. Please see details below.
Please contact us with any questions.
The entry fee for this year is £120 which will be partly sponsored by our lovely sponsors, mainly the British Gliding Association.
To fly in the Junior Nationals you will need your Silver badge and an FAI Competition Licence.
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 30th April 2023. 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 May. 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 2 seater training 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 close at the end of April 2023.
