The London Soaring Society is a not-for-profit flight school and sporting club that has been serving the greater London area for over 50 years.

We are entirely run by our members on a volunteer basis and operate (weather permitting) from around 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Saturday, Sunday, and holidays from early spring to late fall.

Flying gliders

Flying in a glider is one of the purest aviation experiences there is. On a good day, a skilled pilot can stay aloft for hours and travel hundreds of kilometers on nothing but the air currents.

Introduction flights

For yourself, or the aviator/adventurer in your life (spouse, child, friend, etc.), we offer a day membership to experience a 20-30 minute flight for $200 (HST included). Email info@londonsoaringclub.ca to arrange this or if you have further questions.

For those thinking they may want to get their glider pilot license (GPL), we offer a trial membership to experience four instructional flights for $500 (HST included). It can be fully credited towards a full membership minus the cost of the four flights. Email info@londonsoaringclub.ca to arrange this or if you have further questions. 

Maximum passenger weight is 230 lbs. Make sure to bring a hat, sunglasses, water, and a camera.

Joining the club

Full membership includes glider rental, instruction/training, and a Soaring Association of Canada (SAC) membership. It is $1,680 (HST included) plus $44 per flight (HST included). The prices for first-time members are pro-rated starting July 1st.

There is a $500 discount if you have your own glider and will not be flying the club aircraft or if additional family members join. Bursaries are available to help motivated youth cover per-flight costs. Member and public donations for these bursaries are much appreciated and are tax deductible. The Women Soaring Pilots Association also offers several scholarships for new and experienced female pilots.

Email info@londonsoaringclub.ca if you are interesting in joining the club or have further questions.
