The Australian Junior Gliding Club (AJGC) was formed in 2007 by a group of junior pilots who wanted a way of connecting juniors throughout the country. The main aim of the club is to assist and encourage junior pilots in Australia. This can mean anything from helping someone with their initial training to providing assistance to the Australian team heading out to the Junior Worlds.
Just to name a few ways in which the club helps out, it owns an Astir CS single seat glider suitable for early solo pilots, offers financial sponsorship to pilots wishing to improve their gliding and organises the Junior National Championships (JoeyGlide) every year. The AJGC also runs a heavily subsidised coaching week alongside these nationals for pilots who are looking to make the move from gliding to cross country soaring.
