Gliding Queensland Scholarship

I would like to thank Gliding Queensland and the Warwick Gliding Club for the $500 Junior Gliding Scholarship. I believe that the best way to encourage Juniors to further expand their gliding experience is to offer a fantastic incentive such as this scholarship. The Warwick Gliding Club offers exceptional facilities, aircraft, training, and all-year-round soaring weather. Gliding has become a large part of my life, and I believe it is the most challenging, exciting and rewarding sport in the world. The ability to soar with eagles abreast the clouds and experience exactly what nature has on offer is second-to-none. I commenced training in April 2012 at Warwick, advanced to a single-seat Discus in August 2012 and I am now reaping the rewards, overflying the beautiful Darling Downs and experiencing the great weather that it has to offer. I was awarded a scholarship last year also and it gave me many extra flying hours free of charge - free flying?... fantastic! 

I would again like to thank Gliding Queensland and the Warwick Gliding Club for this opportunity to further expand my soaring adventures by offering this scholarship.

I encourage every young aspiring aviator to go to your local club and go for a glide; you will not be disappointed!

"Gliding can not be fully appreciated until one has experienced it themselves." 

Kind regards and safe flights,

Daniel Atkinson.
