Event Details

What is Soaring?

Soaring, or gliding, is an exhilarating, green and affordable way of flying. Without an engine and using only rising air currents, glider pilots can fly for hours and cover hundreds of kilometres. Just like eagles.

The intellectual challenge and invitation for adventure, besides the sheer beauty of soaring, is what gets most glider pilots hooked to this unique sport that offers a sense of freedom second to none.

About Montreal Soaring Council

Montreal Soaring Council is one of the larger gliding clubs in Canada. We operate from Hawkesbury, ON, and fly almost daily from mid-April to October. Our team of Transport Canada qualified flight instructors can teach you in english as well as french. We offer a fleet of modern gliders and a cheerful club environment.

How to become a Glider Pilot?

First of all you have to get your Glider Pilot License. You start flying with an instructor. It takes about 40 flights to master the basic piloting skills. Then comes an unforgetable moment: your first solo flight! You need at least 20 solo flights before passing the practical exam. You also need to follow a theory course and do a written test.

2017 Glider Pilot Theory Course

The course prepares you for the Transport Canada "Glide" written exam. After the course, you will be ready to start flight training in the spring. The written exam can be done only once you have accumulated 3h flying.

Classes take place on the following Saturdays, 9am to 3pm:
- Jan 28: Aerodynamics and Theory of Flight
- Feb 4: Flight Operations, Human Factors
- Feb 11: Meteorology, Flight Instruments
- Feb 18: Canadian Aviation Regulations
- Feb 25: Navigation, Radio
- Mar 25: course revision & exam preparation

Puis-je suivre ce cours en français ?

Le Club de Vol à Voile de Montréal / Montreal Soaring Council est une organisation bilingue - et nous en sommes fiers. Nous offrons l'instruction de vol tant en français qu'en anglais. Nous envisageons d'alterner le cours théorique dans les deux langues à tous les deux ans. En 2018 le cours sera donné en français uniquement.

Club de Vol à Voile de Montréal - Montreal Soaring Council

Le Club de Vol à Voile de Montréal (CVVM) est basé à l'aéroport de Hawkesbury, ON. Les activités de vol ont lieu chaque fin de semaine de mai à octobre, tant que le météo le permet. Pendant les mois d'été on vole presque chaque jour. Le CVVM est une organisation sans but lucratif; son opération dépend complètement de la participation volontaire de ses membres.


 Montreal Soaring Council (MSC) has its home base airfield in Hawkesbury, ON. The gliding club's activities take place each weekend from May through October, weather permitting. During the summer months we fly almost every day. MSC is a non-profit organisation; its operation relies fully on the volunteer participation of its members.
