Graveney Goes Gliding!
This summer one student from each KS3 Tutor group earned the chance to try out gliding. This was based on their excellent attitude throughout the year and their academic progress.
Graveney attended Wycombe Air Park where the Booker Gliding Club took them aloft on the 28th June. The pupils had a great time and the intrepid Mr Johnson described the flight as ‘scary but exhilarating’.
Thanks go to the Air Pilots & Navigators Guild whose Gliding Scheme for London Schools scheme offers students a taste of flying and creates interest in aviation. It also offers scholarships to those who are interested in a career in aviation but can’t access the training due to cost.
