Funds for Gliding

The following is a direct lift from the BGA website (April 2017). Please have a look, and ask if you need help.

Funding Opportunities

Flying needn’t be expensive and as a junior pilot you have lots of opportunities to drive the cost down even further through a range of club scheme, scholarships and bursaries.

We are really fortunate to be supported by some very generous benefactors who every year provide funding and/or training for young pilots. A summary of what is available is listed below – click on the links for more details. We will post details of availability on our News pages and on the Juniors Facebook page so keep an eye open for opportunities that might be able to help you. Note that not all opportunities may be available each year.
