Come out and see what gliding is all about. You can purchase a Introductory Flight (Day Membership), a Four Pack (4 Instructional Flights); or become a LSC Member and get your license. Gift Certificates for birthdays and special occasions are also available. London Soaring operates mostly on weekends and statutory holidays, from mid April to sometime in November with Mother Nature having the final say.
* Our two seat gliders do have a weight limit of 230 pounds for each seat, this weight affects the centre of gravity of the glider and its control limits, at the same time you must be agile enough to get in and out of the glider.
Experience the excitement of soaring!
Introductory Flights (Day Membership) - $150.00
Introductory flights are available to visitors in one of our two seat sailplanes with a qualified glider pilot. You would be situated in the front seat for better viewing and the instructor or certified member will be flying the glider from the back. The flight is usually towed to 2000' and lasts anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes depending on weather conditions.
Pre-booking your flight is not required but we suggest you call our flight line at 519-661-7844 to verify if the club is operating and that the conditions are favorable for an Introductory Flight. Arrive prior to 12:00 noon so we can book you in for your flight. Payment can be made by cash or cheque (we usually can accept credit card payments at the field). Due to aircraft limitations, maximum passenger weight is 230 lbs.
Four Pack Instructional Flights - $400.00
The Four Pack provides a student with an opportunity to take 4 one-on-one instructional flights with a qualified instructor before deciding to join as a full member. This package includes a temporary membership, glider rental, aerotow, 4 self-paced lessons and debriefings. Should you decided to continue your instruction as a full member, you will receive a partial credit from the Four Pack fees which can be applied to your Full LSC Membership fees. We instruct on weekends and holidays during the flying season, weather permitting. For information on what to bring please read Going to London Soaring Club.
Here is a video of a great flight from a neighboring club back in May of 2012, this is a great representation of what cross country flying is all about with some decision making along the way. G.E. (Tim) Wood - Cross Country Flight with Wayne Eaves
