The Gliding to Solo Scholarship Scheme (GSSS)

This is a unique opportunity for students from across the country to take part in a residential gliding scholarship which will see them go from novice to solo in just 2 weeks. To be eligible for the scheme, you will need to be at least 16 years old and meet the criteria set out by participating schools, the Air League and the sponsors for this scheme – British Airways and Boeing. The scheme will open again in 2019.

Before applying for a gliding scholarship – please make sure to read our Terms and Conditions here.

The Gliding to Solo Scholarships are currently closed for applications and will reopen in 2019.

As well as inspiring and educating, the experience is designed to show the individual that aviation could be a realistic career option.

The GSS scheme gives students the opportunity to kick start their flying career or simply give them exposure to the world of aviation through the medium of gliding. The scholarship involves several steps, all designed to give students an insight to flying, the recruitment processes used by British Airways and ultimately the chance to pilot a glider solo.
