General Information

The aim of this section is to outline the licencing requirements for a glider pilot in Canada and outline the basic aviation terminology used here. The material in no way is exhaustive, but follows Transport Canada's published materials, so represents the kinds of terms that they will use on examinations and courses.

In any aviation journey we must consider the pilot, the aircraft, and the environment and this is reflected in this course as well.  Subsequent sections will deal with each of these general areas in detail.
