Single Seater Scheme 2017

Our CGC Single Seater Scheme offers members an excellent opportunity to enjoy some of the benefits of syndicate or private glider ownership without the initial capital outlay. Your flying costs are reduced and the booking facility offers you the certainty of having a glider available for your sole use on the days of your choosing.

You can purchase from one to three shares.  Each share gives you the right to make an advance booking for any of the high performance single seat gliders (DM, FVV and FLY).  One share is ideal if you expect to fly only occasionally but want to ensure you have access to a glider.  Three shares entitles you to unlimited solo flying and the ability to hold three advance bookings – ideal if you plan to fly a lot, or want to maximise your chances of having a glider available when you have a few days holiday planned.

The scheme year runs from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018. In order to allow scheme members to use any unused hours towards the end of the season, flying in Juniors and solo flying in two seaters taken on or after 1st September 2017, will be rebated at end of scheme year (31st March 2018)

This year we are offering two methods of payment for shares. The usual, four instalments in April, May, June and July are unchanged from previous years. However, we are also offering a substantial discount for pilots who wish to purchase all of their shares in advance and before the 1st April 2017. The costs of the two payment methods are set out below:
