Congratulations to Martin Phillimore and Freddie Bull who completed there BI course at PMK yesterday. 17th Dec 2017. We also believe that at 16 years 5 months, Freddie might be the youngest person to become a BGA Instructor.
The Courier has published an article "Gliding: The joy of being in complete harmony with the environment" in which "Michael Alexander speaks to lifelong glider pilot Santiago Cervantes about his passion for taking to the skies." There are plenty of photos!
At the board meeting on Saturday 2nd December we decided to extend the Student membership to everyone 26 or younger and change its name to Young Persons Membership.
There is now no requirement to be in full time education to receive the reduced fees. This means that members who are currently 26 or younger and are full members will get a reduction in their fees.
The Cadet and Youth memberships don't change.
