24 Gliding Scholarship Awards including 20 solos from our two summer courses.

Every year 621 runs three week long courses, one at Easter and two in the summer. Unlike the weekend courses the students can be accommodated at nearby RAF Lyneham.

Each course will have between 10 and 13 cadets over the age of 16 and with between 3 and 6 aircraft operating each day, those not in the aircraft will be helping around the launch point. Its hard work – the second summer course this year flew nearly 580 launches.

This year we’ve had some great students who have worked hard to get as much as possibly out of their Scholarship’s.

Our thanks to all those who have helped them achieve some great results!!!
