621 VGS operated for two continuous “Summer Course” weeks in August with twenty students achieving their Gliding Scholarships, fourteen of which went solo.

The courses also provided the opportunity for the new C-Cats to get their first experience of teaching the full course from start to finish.

With favourable conditions at the end of the fortnight, the junior staff were able to get in some flying, with two AGT2 awards being achieved.

Well done to Ellie Nicholls on passing her C-Cat Instructor course at RAF Syerston. After completing site checks at Hullavington, Ellie taught her first Gliding Scholarship students on the second of 621’s Summer courses.
