Precision Landing Contest - Sep 24
On September 24 there will be a precision landing contest at the club. The pilots representing Canada at the World Soaring Championships will be running the contest. It is open to all members. There will be three classes: licensed pilots, student pilots and beat the champions.
The cost will be $25.00 which will include your launch and glider rental if you don’t have a flat rate. The board of directors has agreed to sponsor the contest and will give all the proceeds to the team. There will be prizes for the winners in each class.
All flights will be in the ASK-21. If you haven’t soloed yet, an instructor will be in the back seat. I encourage all of you to test your skills. The whole team going to the World’s in Australia is made up of SOSA pilots. These guys contribute a lot of energy and work for your club. Here is your chance to help them.
Following the contest, a BBQ is being organized by the Team. Bring your families and enjoy one of the last days of season.
Instructor's meeting - Sep 10

The meeting should last about 1 hour and everyone is welcomed to attend.
Aerobatic program is back
The Acro program will be running again soon.
This season, the program will run on Thursday evenings starting around 4:00 pm. Andrew Corrigan will be coordinating with all participants early in the week to confirm weather conditions, instructors and students. If you are interested in participating, please contact Andrew directly.
If you’re interested in improving your feet and rudder skills perhaps you can consider the “unusual attitude” training. If you want to know how to perform loops, rolls, advanced spin the regular curriculum is what you’re looking for.
Big thanks to Andrea, Joe, Terry, Poul and Scott for their efforts in running the program. I’m looking forward to continued great summer.
