A Mountain Course is an extremely important course for any pilot flying in British Columbia.  In the Pacific Region, the combined effect of the great mountain system and the adjacent Pacific Ocean lead to some extremely changeable flying conditions.  To an unprepared pilot, these conditions can produce a hazardous flying environment.  Our course is designed to provide a licensed pilot with a level of skill and proficiency to fly safely in mountainous terrain.  It is a requirement for all Club members planning flights through the mountains with Club aircraft to complete a Mountain Flying Course.  Call the VFC office to add your name to the list for the next Mountain Ground School course.
