Gliding Scholarship – Victoria Group

The Geelong Gliding Club (GGC) recently awarded Cpl Willow Plenty from Point Cook Squadron in Victoria a scholarship to kickstart her gliding training.

The club committee would like to support younger people’s involvement in gliding and also provide more opportunities for girls to get into it. This package includes membership to the Gliding Federation of Australia (GFA) and her first five instructional flights as a student pilot.

Willow impressed the Geelong Gliding Club committee through her efforts as a Corporal in Point Cook Squadron, having won both Junior and Senior Victorian Cadet of the Year and this year represented Victoria Group as the Federal Cadet of the Year candidate for Victoria Group.

When presenting the scholarship to Cpl Plenty, Mr Steven McAvoy, president of the Geelong Gliding Club, also gave the Point Cook Squadron cadets, Officers, and parents an informative presentation on gliding and what cadets can expect when they visit a gliding club and go for their first training flights.

Our thanks go to the Geelong Gliding Club committee and members for their support of the Australian Air League and youth in aviation.
