We would love to have you as a guest and fly with us.  You can either come to the gliderport or book a flight directly.  All flights are done in certified, two-seat aircraft, by Transport Canada Licensed pilots, and you can choose from a gentle gliding  up to a 'hands-on' instructional experience.

You can also buy a gift certificate for yourself or a friend.

The flight starts with a briefing by your pilot about the glider, normal flight procedures, and safety.  Then you will be escorted to one of our two-seat gliders and secured in the front seat.  Your pilot will sit in the back and perform pre-flight checks to get ready for your launch.  The pilot alone will be doing the flying during the takeoff, landing, and launching phases of flight.  However, after the release, if you like, you can get some experience in how the aircraft is controlled.

A normal aerotow will take you to 3,000 feet (900 metres) above ground level. Depending on the prevailing weather conditions, you climb to altitudes above that.  Your flight will typically last between 20 and 30 minutes.

If you have any questions, call our Club office at 519-848-3621 or email Ivor David's 'Contact form' in the 'About Us' menu.

Don't forget to bring a hat and sunglasses!
