NARROMINE CHOSEN TO HOST THE 8th JUNIOR WORLD GLIDING CHAMPIONSHIPS
This is the first time the event has been held outside of Europe. It will attract the cream of young glider pilots from across the world. Juniors are 25 years or younger as defined by the International Gliding Committee (IGC) who awarded the contest to Australia last week.
The competition will be held 1st-12th December 2015 and there will be a lead up practice event, at Narromine, in December 2014. The GFA expects the site will cater for in excess of 80 gliders and an influx of 300 people consisting of pilots, crew and organisers to the township of Narromine for the two week period.
