We’re delighted to announce that 3 Bader Braves Young Aviators Days have been confirmed for 2022.

You’ll find all 3 Bader Braves Young Aviators Days in our Events section. Please fill in the application form on your chosen event page to secure your place, or contact Keith Delderfield for more information or for a printed form.
We hope that you’ll find an event that suits you and very much look forward to welcoming our Braves and their families again after too long!
As always, we are deeply indebted to the participating Airfields, their pilots, staff and volunteers who make our Young Aviators Days possible, and send a heartfelt thank you to Bodmin Airfield, Cornwall; City Airport and Heliport, Manchester and Sherburn Aero Club, Leeds. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
We’ll continue to keep you updated so please keep checking in…
In the meantime for those of you who missed it or didn’t receive our Newsletter (please contact me if you’d like me to send it on), here is what Keith Delderfield wrote about the sadness and frustration of having to cancel our previous Flying Day Programmes:
BADER BRAVES 2021!!
What a frustrating year it has been! Despite all the time and effort put in over the ‘20/21 winter period and all of the special preparations made by our friends at airfields throughout the UK, covid19 once again rendered it useless.
What at one time offered great hope soon became despair as, understandably, a further lockdown was put in place along with more stringent social distancing rules. Sadly the confines of the cabin of a light aeroplane make social distancing an impossibility and the sanitisation requirement following each flight is impractical. On top of everything else our main concern remains that of the safety of all of our Bader Braves and their families. Sadly there was little choice other than the abandonment of our 2021 Young Aviators programme.
Who knows what 2022 has in store for us? Discussions are already taking place and provisional plans made in the hope that Young Aviators will return next year. So keep an eye open on our website in the New Year when an announcement will be made and more importantly, keep everything crossed for better luck next year!!
Bader Braves Co-ordinator.
