2017 Introductory Schedule PDF Print E-mail


Introductory flights are arranged by appointment.

Flying activities including introductory flights occur every weekend. We also fly on most Thursdays and Fridays.


Using both of our dual-seat trainer aircraft, we could schedule up to 3 Introductory Flights in a two hour period. Because of the logistical commitment on the part of Cu Nim volunteer instructors, tow-pilots and ground crew, pre-payment and pre-booking for Introductory Flights is required. In order to book  a flight, please contact the Intro Flight Coordinator at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 403-200-2470 or

Please indicate the date of your desired booking and provide a telephone number (and email if available) where we can contact you to confirm (or possibly cancel if weather conditions are not favorable for gliding).  


Please review the Intro Flight FAQ question on weight limitations for glider passengers and contact the Intro Flight Coordinator if this is a possible issue.


Cancellation policy - If you need to cancel your booking and you give us 48 hours notice, it will give us time to contact someone on the wait list and we'll refund 100% of the $175 fee. Within 48 hours the fee is non-refundable. We will reschedule if we have to cancel because of weather.


We'll have a bunch of people at the airfield to welcome you, answer questions, show you the aircraft and give you a feel for the operation. You're welcome to bring family and friends, and to come early. We look forward to seeing you!  And don't forget your camera!
