BGA Gliding Bursaries Available
Air Cadets who have completed an Air Cadet gliding
scholarship, are invited to develop their gliding via Junior Gliding
Centres, such as the Cambridge Gliding Centre. To help cadets fund this
gliding through a scholarship and training scheme the BGA has
developed a bursary scheme.
The Cambridge Gliding Centre is providing the first Junior Gliding Centre (JGC)
within the Central and Eastern Region of the Air Cadet Organisation to
enable this unique partnership to become reality. Details are available via
