Introductory Flights

Be our guest and fly with us.  Either come to the gliderport or book a flight directly.  All flights are done in certified, two-seat aircraft, by Transport Canada Licensed pilots.  Choose a gentle glide or a 'hands-on' instructional experience.  You can also buy a gift certificate for yourself or a friend.

Flights start with a briefing by your pilot about the glider, normal flight procedures, and safety.  Then you are escorted to a two-seat glider and secured in the front seat.  Your pilot sits in the back and performs pre-flight checks before launch.  The pilot does the flying during the takeoff, landing, and launch phases.  However, after the release point, if you like, you can get some experience controlling the aircraft.

A normal aerotow takes you to 3,000 feet (900 metres) above ground. Depending on the weather conditions, you may climb above that.  Your flight typically lasts between 12 and 30 minutes.

If you have any questions, call our Club office at 519-848-3621 or via the 'About Us-Contact' menu item.

Don't forget to bring a hat and sunglasses!
