At the board meeting on Saturday 2nd December 2017 we decided to extend the Student membership to everyone 26 or younger and change its name to Young Persons Membership.
There is now no requirement to be in full time education to receive the reduced fees. This means that members who are currently 26 or younger and are full members will get a reduction in their fees.
The Cadet and Youth memberships don't change.

There is some paperwork for it's annual & ARC to be completed before it can fly but that day is very close!
Section 3 governs badge flights, and both OOs and anyone contemplating a badge flight (especially Silver distance) should read this.
