Description

Join us and we will teach you:

  • To fly a glider solo. The minimum age to fly on your own is 14 – years before you can learn to drive!
  • How to soar and climb using invisible lift, staying airborne for hours at a time with no engine, just like a bird.
  • To navigate cross-country, perform aerobatics, or simply float around enjoying the view.

There is a thriving young person scene, both at Cambridge Gliding Centre and throughout the UK. Join us and discover a unique and incredible new hobby that is both very exciting and extremely rewarding.

Young Person Membership is available to people under 21* years old (under 25* if in full time education). It includes all the benefits of Full Membership at a cost of from £140 per year.
