The 99s Conversion Course is an accelerated course in transitioning from a powered pilot license (ATPL/CPL/PPL) into a Glider Pilot License. 99s who are already Glider Pilots through Air Cadets can also benefit from this camp as a skill refresher and progression to higher performance equipment. Flights for these participants will be tailored to advance their soaring skills and judgement needed to fly gliders cross country.
Here is what is included in the overall cost of the course:
- Ground school
- 40 Air Tows (includes 20 solos)
- Dual instruction
- Course material
- Glider Pilot Log book
- 2022 York Soaring membership fee
- GPL License fee
Camping is available for those who prefer to stay at the airfield. York has facilities for RVs, trailers, and tents as well as 3 rustic cottages available at no extra charge during the camp. Our clubhouse has a full kitchen available as well as toilets and shower facilities.
The only thing you will need is a Soaring Association of Canada membership for insurance purposes (which costs $80).
