Gliding in the Air Cadets is amazing and is open to all Cadets. Watch this video and you’ll get some idea of what an experience it is…of course it is miles better in real life. If you are 13 years of age or more, you could be in the front seat, just contact us.
The Air Cadets can provide all the training needed that can take you all the way up to a solo standard. Manningtree Cadets regularly attend a local Volunteer Gliding Schools (VGS) where all new cadets are introduced to gliding through Gliding Induction Courses (GIC). There are three levels of GIC; the highest level obtained by achieving 5 launches or 30 minutes of gliding time. Cadets can apply for a Gliding Scholarship to obtain their Gliding Wings Badge and on successful completion of their training, they have the opportunity to fly a solo flight.
Gliding in the Air Cadets is free…all that is needed is your motivation and plenty of adrenaline!! To find out more, get in touch.
