Cambridge Gliding Centre also operates an annual bursary award scheme aimed at providing financial support for young persons wanting to progress in gliding.

SKU: YPM Category:


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.

    Amazing opportunity for me to get to live my dream of flying, getting great support from the instructors and other members. Great atmosphere, and really enjoy the flying and the club feel.
