The Women’s World Gliding Championship 2022 (WWGC2022) is being held 13-27 August at The Gliding Centre, Husbands Bosworth. WWGC2022 will see the world’s top female glider pilots race their aircraft thousands of kilometres across 14 days to see who will be the new world champion.

As part of the competition, there will be a Public Open Weekend on 20-21 August, where we will have a BWPA stand present. As well as giving visitors the opportunity to watch the flying, the Open Weekend will feature the Sustainable Aviation Show, Women in Aviation exhibition, glider simulator, craft stalls, music, food and children’s activities.

We are looking for volunteers to represent the BWPA on a stand at the event across the weekend. Volunteers are asked to wear a BWPA t-shirt or polo shirt. If you haven’t already ordered one from our online shop, then there is still time to do so before the event if you order in the next few days.

If you’re interested in volunteering on either or both of the days, then please email the events team to let them know the days/times you are available.
