Junior Events

Throughout the year, UK Junior Gliding runs events aimed at young pilots.

The Winter Series welcomes junior pilots of all abilities from pre-solo to instructors. Join us for a weekend away, seeing a different site, meeting pilots from across the country all while gaining new flying experiences.

The UK Junior Nationals is an annual BGA competition open to all junior pilots with a Silver Badge. With a mix of different experience levels, this is an ideal place to start for those wishing to become competition pilots. For juniors who don’t meet the requirements to enter, competition training with instructors in two-seaters is also available.

These events are not managed or operated by the BGA, so please contact UKJG regarding event arrangements and the host airfield gliding club for any details regarding the operation.
