Glider Operations at SFFC During September and October - Sharing the Skies Safely
On weekends at CYSH in September and October there will be Air Cadet glider operations conducting right hand circuits, making circuit traffic challenging.

When Air Cadet glider operations are in progress there is no “dead side” of the circuit. (Gliders and tow plane do right circuits). In this instance joining from the dead side of the circuit is potentially dangerous and should be avoided. On these days pilots should join straight into downwind, sufficiently upwind so as not to conflict with traffic in the circuit on upwind and crosswind legs. Of course gliders have traffic priority over powered aircraft.
