Welcome to the WGC - Over 60 years of soaring in Manitoba!
Our gliding season is now over for 2023.
The winning ticket for a Discovery Flight was drawn this afternoon soon after the Manitoba Outdoors Show concluded. The winner is Jacques Bourgeois. Thanks to everyone that dropped by to visit and ask questions. Looking forward to seeing some of you at the gliding club once we get flying in early spring.
The Winnipeg Gliding Club is a volunteer run organization that exists to promote the sport of soaring, and aviation in general. We can train you in the art and science of navigating and operating gliders. Are you up for the challenge!
We offer Discovery Flight Certificates for as little as $155. Click on "Discovery Flights" for further information on all available flight options. (Note that GST is included in all Discovery Flight prices).
Flights are available to the public whenever there is flying. We operate most weekends and holidays from May to October, and can schedule visitors on weekdays by prior arrangement. To fly at the Winnipeg Gliding Club, a person must be 12 years of age or older. Please note that there are restrictions based on passenger height and weight. You are welcome to call ahead if you want to make sure we can accommodate you or have any other questions. Visitors wanting to fly are asked to become a "one-day" member of the Club and sign a waiver before taking a flight.
Call 204-735-2868 for more details, and scheduling.
The Winnipeg Gliding Club has partnered up with the Canadiana Camper Company to offer a very unique experience. Try "glamping" in their fabulous tents and then try a Discovery Flight in a glider in our 2-seat gliders after you enjoy a quiet night at the Winnipeg Gliding Club facility. Check out the Canadiana Camper Company for their offerings and we look forward to seeing you soon https://www.camperandco.net/.
