I am Will Blackburn from Yorkshire, England. I’m 19 years old and have been flying since I was 14. I went solo at 14 and became a basic instructor at 16. Recently I have become a tug pilot at my club. I fly at the Wolds Gliding Club at Pocklington. I mostly fly my Standard Cirrus “WB”.
My biggest achievement so far is to train as a British Junior Gliding Team Squad member. I applied for the get sponsored scheme as I thought it would be a great opportunity to get to use the latest gliding technology which would help me to try and perform better. I wanted the LX9050 as I thought it has a great amount of information provided on it to help keep me ahead of the game while flying x country.
My goals for the season are to do my first 500km flight and to fly the club class nationals.
