Soaring to Success!
The Air League is launching a brand new initiative with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.
We are offering students from the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Area the opportunity to learn more about the aviation and aerospace industries as well as giving them an opportunity to go gliding and flying. Selected schools have chosen to take part.
The programme will be done in Stages:
