  Schweizer SGS 1-26 (C-GJRF)
This golden oldie was purchased by the club in 2015. Despite its glide ratio of 23:1 it has shown itself to be a solid performer as it can go and stay up on weak thermic conditions

Although it may not be the highest performance aircraft it does have numerous diamond badges to its name!
  Schempp-Hirth Cirrus (C-GBMX)
This single seat sailplane is our highest performance aircraft yet, with a glide ratio of 44:1 enabling BMX and its pilot to go extended distances. It is fitted with an oxygen system and fully retractable landing gear.
Cessna 150-150 (C-GQOK)
The club towplane is a Cessna 150-150 retrofitted with a Horton STOL kit.  Qualified club members serve as tow pilots.  This towplane was purchased by the club in 1979.
