Exciting news June 7, 2022: 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/.
The 2022 flying season is well underway and we have had some great flights and have begun student training with our new intake of students. We are offering Discovery Flights as well, on weekends as weather permits. For further information on our Discovery Flight rates see the link to the right.
Welcome to the WGC - Over 60 years of soaring in Manitoba!
We are taking on students in limited numbers due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The Winnipeg Gliding Club 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!
The Winnipeg Gliding Club is offering 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, subject to the availability of a pilot and a club owned glider. 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. Please call ahead if you want to make sure we can accommodate you.
Visitors wanting to fly are asked to become a "one-day" member of the Club and sign a waiver before taking a flight.
