New to Vancouver

Postby Dawn Richardson » Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:44 pm

Hi! I recently moved to Vancouver from New Zealand with my glider and I'm hoping to start getting out and enjoying the summer skies. I'm fairly new to the sport, I got my PG2 back home in March this year (IPPI 3) and so would love to connect with some local pilots and learn about the area a bit to get my confidence up for flying here.

Can anyone recommend ways I can start connecting with the community here and getting out into the sky?

Thanks so much!
Dawn

Hi Dawn,

welcome to Vancouver!

We use LINE app to coordinate driving out to our main flying sites, Woodside and Bridal. There are two groups: 'WCSC' and 'XC Paragliding'. If you sign up for LINE then someone in the group can invite you.

You can also get in contact with Jim Reich from FlyBC, the school at the bottom of Mt Woodside, he is out there every fly-able day.

See you in the air soon!

Hi Dawn, I just sent you an invite to the WCSC group.
