Aspeq Boosts Youth Glide New Zealand (YGNZ) Camp with Sponsorship for 2024 Event

Jan 15, 2024

In a stride towards fostering the development of young glider pilots, Aspeq proudly announces its sponsorship of two prizes at the upcoming 2024 Youth Glide New Zealand (YGNZ) camp.

The sponsorship is dedicated to supporting the ongoing aviation experience of the recipients, aligning with YGNZ's mission to inspire and develop young individuals through the exhilarating sport of gliding.

Aspeq's sponsorship of two prizes at the 2024 YGNZ camp underscores the collaborative effort required to encourage the next generation of glider pilots. The prizes aim to recognize outstanding achievements and contribute to the recipients' continuous growth in their aviation pursuits. Aspeq remains dedicated to supporting initiatives that inspire and empower young aviators, fostering a vibrant and dynamic future for gliding in New Zealand.

The 2024 YGNZ camp is set to host 20 young glider pilots who will engage in intensive training opportunities facilitated by dedicated volunteers. Aspeq's sponsorship reflects a commitment to nurturing the skills and enthusiasm of these young aviators, contributing to the growth of the aviation community in New Zealand.

YGNZ, a not-for-profit organization founded in 2006, addresses the declining involvement of young people in gliding. With a mission to stimulate imagination, character, and self-determination, YGNZ aims to open doors to a lifelong adventure sport or a fulfilling aviation-related career prospect for the youth.

The 10-day Youth Soaring Development Camp, established in 2010 by Roger Read in Omarama, has become a hallmark event in the gliding community. Starting with just three youth pilots, the camp has grown to accommodate 25 youth pilots in recent years, offering a secure and supportive environment for skill development. This annual event brings together like-minded youth from across New Zealand and has expanded to include locations in both Omarama and Matamata.

YGNZ's commitment extends beyond the camp, encompassing various initiatives to support youth in gliding, such as mini-camps, competition flying funds, youth instructor training, insurance schemes, and the acquisition of a new Skylaunch winch.

The 2024 YGNZ camp promises to be a transformative experience for the participating youth, thanks to the combined efforts of YGNZ, corporate sponsors, and the dedicated volunteers who make this event possible. The sponsorship marks a positive step towards ensuring the longevity and success of youth gliding in New Zealand.

Aspeq provides two Glider assessments on behalf of Civil Aviation Association NZ, 'CPL Principles of Flight & Glider Operations' and 'CPL General Aircraft Technical Knowledge (Glider)'.
