17th April 2020 to 19th April 2020
****** POSTPONED ******
UPDATE: We regret to announce that the event at Shenington is postponed due to COVID-19. The new date is TBA. We are hoping to set up some online XC discussions, Bronze revision sessions, as well as a fun gliding virtual event over the original dates instead, so keeping an eye out for updates!
We are heading back to Shenington for the third round of the Winter Series. With a nice ridge, great soaring and access to Wales, expect this to be a fantastic spring event!
The third round of the Winter Series is at the start of the soaring season, so we are hoping to run this event slightly differently to previous ones. As well as the usual local soaring experiences, we will also make the most of the higher performance gliders for cross-country training. We're expecting members of the Junior British Team to run some coaching sessions, including task setting and lead-and-follow training.
Please note: Everyone attending must register through this website, even if they don't plan to fly. This is so we know who is coming and to ensure that we have emergency contact details for everyone on-site.
Supervision & Safeguarding
UK Junior Gliding organises the Winter Series to promote gliding and encourage flying through the winter months at adventurous airfields. During flying and other organised activities, the UKJG team will maintain an appropriate level of supervision to ensure everyone's safety and welfare. The supervision of under-18's is the responsibility of the parents or a nominated responsible adult who is on-site during the event. Please contact the team if you have any questions relating to supervision or safeguarding at the Winter Series.
Temporary Membership Form
Shenington Gliding Club needs a temporary membership form from each pilot before they can fly. If you're under 18, you will need a parent's signature on the form. You can download a copy to print and sign here (notes here).
This event is not open for registrations.
