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.

Upcoming Events

Winter Series Round 4 : Edgehill


Friday 22 – Sunday 24 April 2022

For the last event of the 2021/22 Winter Series we will be heading to the newly formed Edgehill Gliding Centre! We have been to Shenington Airfield before, with excellent soaring conditions and uncluttered airspace nearby.

With it being in April, this Winter Series event will have more of a cross-country focus, with tasks set by Finn Sleigh and Ben Hughes for those bringing their own gliders, as well as for the two-seaters to allow those Junior pilots not yet able to fly cross-country to experience it. Other two seaters will be doing local soaring, so the event will cater for all.
