Another successful Wyvern Gliding Club Battle Back course

A great bunch of 10 students from all walks of life, serving and veterans, got together at Wyvern gliding club (Army Gliding Association) for an adapted 5 day gliding course.  The Monday was lost to high winds but that was an ideal opportunity to cover the necessary background theory ahead of four days of full-on flying, including use of a K21 with hand rudder and a G109b TMG. Great work by Wyvern GC led by club chair, Jamie Sage.

Battle Back is an adaptive sport and adventurous training programme for wounded, injured and sick personnel from across the Armed Forces, including mobilised reservists. It is is an MOD initiative delivered in partnership with Help for Heroes and The Royal British Legion.
