Bathurst Soaring Club is holding 6 day courses for beginner pilots.

The courses will run for 6 days, Sunday to Friday.

Date of the next course: 24-29 Sep 2017:

We have decided to make the first day of the course a Sunday (Bookings permitted). This will allow those attending to get a feel for the club operations. Duty pilots and other club members can train those on the course on:

  • Safety procedures
  • general on field glider handling
  • wing running
  • tug signalling
  • completing flight sheets
