Upper Sixth Andy goes solo

Year 13 pupil, Andy, has recently undertaken his first solo glide. 
 
Recently we reported that Andy was in the running for a 12 Hour Powered Flying Scholarship from the Air League, towards his Private Pilots Licence, and are delighted to announce that he has received the news that he has been awarded it. This means that over the summer he will spend an intense week at Booker Aviation in High Wycombe which will kick-start his progress towards the PPL. He’s also planning to spend time working towards becoming a gliding instructor and cross-country glider pilot. 
 
Speaking of his achievement, Andy said, “I must also extend my thanks to The Spinney Trust, who awarded me a grant to undertake a five-day intensive gliding course at Lasham Gliding Society which has greatly contributed to my recent flying success. Going solo before I left Clayesmore was a dream, and now it’s become reality.”
