How did I start flying and why do I continue to be empassioned by it?
In the fall of 2007 I joined the Edmonton Soaring Club. Although my preliminary interest was to be able to take friends and family flying, I soon developed a keen interest in the soaring and cross-country aspects of gliding. In the summer of 2008 I attended SOSA's Canadian Junior Soaring Camp.
In the summer of 2009 I decided to follow my dreams and made it my goal to represent
Canada at the World Junior Soaring Competition to be held in in the summer of 2011. Putting my studies on hold, last winter I travelled to Germany to improve my cross-country flying abilities. This past June I flew at the Canadian National Competition. Although I did not win the contest, I performed well enough to garner the support of the Canadian Committee to represent the Canadian Juniors next year. Australia
This winter I will be returning to
to improve my contest flying experience. I will be flying at the Australian Junior Gliding Contest (Joey Glide) and the Australian Club Class Nationals. Australia
