Your flight training at Mountain City Aviation will give you access to the Morden Airport facilities. They have a 4,000 foot paved runway and also a well-maintained 2,300 foot grass field.
As a student pilot, your flight training will include dealing with both soft field and short field take-offs and landings. At the Morden Airport, you will have real flight experience with both. Instead of having to ‘simulate’ a short field or soft field landing or take-off, you can use the Grass Strip Runway to actually experience this type of flight training.
As a student pilot, you will be taught many flight manoeuvres. You will then be given the opportunity to practice them over and over. There is a ‘Practive Area’, clear of built-up or populated areas, where you can practice your flight manoeuvres in a large open area of sky. The Mountain City Aviation Practice Area is close by, enabling students to spend more time perfecting their piloting skills. The Practice Area encompasses a 1,200 square mile area covering the distance from Darlingford to Altona and from Highway 3 to the 49th parallel.
Drop by Mountain City Aviation anytime, but Fridays are special. Every Friday is Flyday Friday.
On Flyday Fridays, many airplanes travel many miles to fly-in and visit Mountain City Aviation. The pilots enjoy the great burgers, steaks and home-baked desserts available at the Morden Flying Club. Flyday Fridays is also a great opportunity to speak with other pilots, and learn more about aviation. Once a month, the Canadian Air Force Pilots also fly in to support Flyday Fridays.
