Familiarization Flying

Cadets are asked to be at the Regina Flying Club 15 min before their flight.  NO UNIFORMS and Dress warm…remember it will be colder when you are in the air.  The flight last approx 40 minutes including taxiing.  Parents, due to very limited space, we ask that you stick around if possible so you are there when the flight ends to take your Cadet home.
