Great Lakes expects to start its 2021 flying season Saturday May 1. Glider rigging and setup will take place each weekend this April.

Student training will take place on weekends and public holidays, and Introductory Guest Flights are being scheduled for Fridays, weather permitting.

We are currently accepting new members and students. Please contact us if you are interested in learning to soar!


Great Lakes operates in compliance with all public health COVID directives including the use of masks and effective physical distancing.

COVID restrictions limit the number of Introductory Guest Flights that we are able to provide. Please contact us to reserve your flying experience.

To protect our members and host community all visits to the club require prior arrangement. We are not able to accommodate drop-ins as in previous years.
