YouthGlide aims to capture the imagination of young people to become junior pilots from 14 to 18 years of age.

Why Gliding?

Real flying in modern gliders enables you to explore the skies for a whole day long, travelling perhaps two or three hundred kilometres before you return home as the sun sets.

It is not difficult to become a safe glider pilot. So long as you are reasonably fit you can learn to glide at any age; you can fly solo as young as 15. Once trained, many newcomers go on to fly cross-country and to enjoy for themselves the exhilaration of finding up-currents of air and viewing the unfolding world below in its proper perspective.

And if you like to compete, gliding can be one of the most challenging and demanding of individual sports, both mentally and physically. But, for most people, the joy of gliding comes from simply flying quietly like a bird in the freedom of the air and sharing with friends their enthusiasm for all that the sport has to offer. There is nothing else they would rather be doing.
