Gliding

Gliding Inductions and Scholarships

Gliding takes place at specific gliding locations all through the year, to give cadets the experience of controlled gliding. The two gliders used are the Vigilant and the Viking that allow the cadets to be trained on and then take control of the aircraft. A flight typically lasts 30 minutes, and shows the cadet how the glider handles and the basic principles behind gliding effectively. Gliding is available once they have passed the basic examinations and are enrolled.
