The Royal Aeronautical Society General Aviation Group will be holding their Ann Welch Lecture in London on 25th May entitled ‘UK Junior Gliding – The beginning of the Future’. The presentation, given by Steve Pozerskis will focus on how the BGA has turned a small group of enthusiastic junior pilots into a thriving brand that has flying associations from around the world seeking to copy the model. It will include an introduction to sport gliding, the UK Junior Gliding brand and how it is encouraging participation in aviation (both sport and commercial) and will conclude with what the future holds. The lecture will hope to provide guidance for other air sports in how to not only attract young pilots but to retain them thus creating a legacy to ensure General Aviation thrives in the future.
