London Gliding Club

young people

We have a long history of partnership with schools and youth organisations. Groups of students (typically Year 8 and above) visit us for a gliding experience day, generally at weekends, but can be organised for mid-week.

The gliding experience can help to build self-esteem. To take control of a glider, under supervision, and explore how the controls make the aircraft move through the air, is an experience few would have enjoyed.

Special arrangements have been made to ensure that young people are properly catered for. For full information on the youth procedures and polices please see the operating procedure document.

Students can continue their flying through our Cadets and Juniors programmes. Click on the button below for more information
