Local Activities, Sights & Events of Interest to Visitors The Montreal Soaring Council formed on June 25, 1946 when three clubs, The Canadair Recreation Association, The McGill Gliding Club and The Montreal Gliding Club amalgamated.

The Montreal Soaring Council finally found a permanent home in 1957 at Hawkesbury, Ont., after many years of flying from different locations (Montreal East, Granby, St. Eugene and even Pendleton for a short time).

We average 2,600 flights a year, and operate seven days a week (May-November) weather permitting. Like most Gliding Clubs in Canada, we are a non-profit organization and any person in good health is eligible for membership.

The directors, instructors, tow pilots and operations officers all give of their time voluntarily with no compensation. Since the club depends on the cooperation of its members for its existence and in order to keep club membership fees as low as possible, all members are expected to help with daily operational and maintenance chores to the best of their abilities.

For more information about the Montreal Soaring Council check out their Web site at http://flymsc.org.

The MSC club fleet consists of three - L19 “Bird Dog” tugs and 10 sailplanes. In addition to the club fleet, there are approximately 15 privately owned sailplanes tied down in trailers on our 260-acre airport.

The airfield itself boasts a 2,000 by 400-foot grass strip which is tiled with 20,000 feet of drain.

Hawkesbury and the surrounding region are a virtual paradise for nature and outdoor sports enthusiasts. Hawkesbury is a short distance from the legendary ski resorts of the Laurentians and within minutes of hundreds of fishing lakes.

You’ll also find two spectacular golf courses. Hawkesbury is very proud of its two picturesque and challenging 18-hole golf courses and of its four curling ice-sheets. One golf course is private while the other is public.

If skating or swimming are more your style, our sports complex features a semi-olympic pool, and two indoor skating rinks.

The Hawkesbury Public library is located in a beautifully landscaped setting as part of the Town Hall complex.
