- Flights generally last anywhere from 15 to a maximum of 30 minutes depending on conditions.
- Offered on weekends on a first come first served basis.  Just show up, carefully drive out to the flight line trailer, introduce yourself and purchase a daily membership along with an introductory flight.   The next available priority number will be assigned to you.   The earlier you arrive, the lower your number will be and the sooner you will be able to experience the thrill of motorless flight.   On busy days, interested parties arriving after 12:00 PM may be required to wait several hours for an aircraft to be available.   Intro flights are usually also available during weekdays, but cannot be guaranteed.   If you're in the neighbourhood and see us in operation, then please drop-in and inquire.

Available (Full) Membership Packages:

In an effort to promote our sport, MSC offers several differently priced "full" membership packages. 

Flying gliders at MSC involves 4 separate types of charges:

  1. An annual MSC Membership fee to belong to the club.
  2. An annual Soaring Association of Canada (SAC) Membership fee.
  3. Glider rental fees. (Flat rate plans are available-mandatory for pilots "in-training").
  4. Tow fees to cover the cost of operating our fleet of L-19 Bird Dog tugs.

Full Membership - The standard rate applicable to established members of the gliding community. This rate is based on sharing the costs of all expenses associated with operating the club.

Reduced Membership- to support family flying and young pilots with limited funds, our "reduced rate" category is applicable to air cadets, students enrolled in a recognized educational facility who are aged 25 or less, as well as spouses and dependants of "full" members.

Ab-Initio Membership - This first time, one time only, rate is designed to encourage adults over 25, and with no prior gliding experience, to try out our sport.

Guest Membership - for pilots living more than 300 km from Hawksbury but wishing to fly while in the neighorhood
