The Canadian Rockies Soaring club is based at Invermere airport in the beautiful Columbia Valley of British Columbia Canada.
Our club was formed in 2001 by resident Invermere glider pilots. We are very enthusiastic about soaring and flying cross country.
The Online Contest, an Internet based International Soaring Competition, attracts a thousand gliding clubs from around the globe to compete against each other during the soaring season. We think that our club's Online Contest performance speaks for itself:-
||# km flown
||12th of 1224 clubs
||17th of 1117 clubs
||22nd of 1058 clubs
||15th of 1032 clubs
1st in North America!
||8th of 861 clubs
||3rd of 425 clubs
Hans Binder continues to show us the potential of the mountains we fly, as in previous years Hans again flew the best 6 flights in Canada and recorded a huge tally of 30,546km in 2006.
Club members Mike Glatiotis, Trevor Florence, Kevin Bennett, Ian Spence and Tim Wood between them hold 10 Canadian records!
