The Courses at 621VGS

Gliding Scholarship

The course is a series exercises, each one building on the previous one, over 40 launches. The exercises first teach how to fly the glider and when proficient, circuits and emergencies.

You have completed the course when you have covered all the exercises to the required standard. It will always be the ultimate aim to try and get you to 'solo' standard, but this is not always possible in the number of launches allowed.

There are two awards:

Dark blue wings for the successful completion of the course.

Silver wings if a solo flight is completed.

Instructor walking away from solo launch.
