Gliding to Solo Scheme (GSS)
The Boeing Gliding to Solo Scheme is a unique opportunity that helps young people take to the skies and sees them learn how to fly in a glider over the course of a 10-day residential course. The programme is on hold for 2020 but we hope to be able to bring back this opportunity in 2021 in a new and refreshed format.
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 airlines and ultimately the chance to pilot a glider solo.
