The Horsham Coaching Week (HCW) is an annual event that occurs in the week prior to Horsham Week.  It is designed to develop the skills and experience required for you to fly cross county, both further and faster, and get you ready for Horsham week!  Participants vary widely in skill and experience, but as a minimum, you will need a C Certificate and endorsement from your CFI (if you don't yet have a silver C).  There are no restrictions at the other end.


Participants in Horsham Coaching Week 09

HCW starts on 25 Jan and finishes on 1 Feb.  Each day includes some lectures, daily briefing, tasking, a flight and post flight analysis.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own single seater, however we do have 2 P2 seats available with coaches in high performance 2 seater gliders, if you need it.  A flight with a coach is also an excellent way to get detailed feedback on how to improve your techniques and skills.

Costs.  There is a $100 participation fee plus a small amenity fee paid to the local club of $50.  Accommodation is available at the aerodrome (camping or bunk house) or in motels in town 5 minutes away.  Breakfast is self serve in the clubhouse and there is a lunch service.  Dinners are also self serve, but we often go out as a group to eat.

So want to fly a big task and fly faster than you currently fly, then HCW is for you.  Visit Horsham Week 2019 and go to the Coaching Week page for more info and to sign up.
