Cross Country Competition Flying Opportunities

For youngsters who wish to take their flying further with the Foundation and experience the excitement and adventure of flying in a cross country gliding competition, the Faulkes Flying Foundation has entered the DG505 Orion 2 Seat Training Gliders in the Dunstable and Lasham Regionals.

It is intended that interested youngsters should have the opportunity to fly in the 2nd seat to experience a racing cross country flight which will typically last over 2 hours and possibly as much as 4 hours, covering distances of several hundred kms.

The competion dates for 2004 will be posted when available and interested parties should contact Mike Woollard as soon as possible to register their interest.

Cost 50 a day with bursary support possible.
