Somerset ACF Gliding
Over three days in August, Army Gliding Club (Wyvern) had the opportunity to provide experience gliding sessions to 67 members of the Somerset Army Cadet Force – one of the many activities they undertook in the Salisbury Plain area as part of their annual Summer Camp. Ranging in ages from 14 to 18, all Cadets were introduced to gliding and flying a glider under the control of a qualified Instructor from the club. All had two flights, with a number gaining soaring flights. 107 winch launches delivered over 16 hours of flying, and to judge from expressions on returning to the ground, all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Wyvern is a military sports club and the opportunity to make gliding available and build ties with the potential soldiers of the future was invaluable to both the club and the Cadets.
