The Willi 2015

For those advanced students interested in this years Willi. If you have more questions please ask Vincene or Keith


If you are already signed up - great and thanks! If not, a gentle reminder that we're just 13 days away from the June 15 deadline for early registration. You can save yourself $20 by registering and paying early. And, more important, you'll have one of the just 100 spots available and be entered in the Early Registration draw for dinner while you're in Golden.

Here are just a few other enticements as finalized at our big team meeting last night...

  • The Muller BBQ will happen Saturday evening, July 25, featuring homemade sausage (thanks Glen) and kegs of "Rutting Elk Red" (thanks Vincene, John, Dale and Randy).
  • The Pilot Bags for each competitor are logoed this year and look great. They will be stuffed with the famous Willi Buff, all kinds of helpful items, and the inevitable paper work to keep you out of the doghouse with the organizers and landowners.
  • Our sponsors are really winding up, so you can expect Morning Meeting and Dinner Raffle prizes that include a hiking harness, varios, wind meters, T-shirts, gift certificates, etc.
  • The Breakfast Ladies are raring to go with even nicer breakfasts, a lunch bag program, and the big buffet to end it all off.
  • Many ways to win, with the new "Super Sledder" Award (most landings at the LZ) joining returning favorites the "Willi Make It" (you don't want to win this one) and "Spot, Spot, Where's the F****G Spot".

All this, and the best flying you will do all year. What's the hold up - sign up! 56 pilots already have.

HAGAR EXAM

Transport Canada HAGAR EXAM


Dear Pilots

We  have succeeded in booking Transport Canada to come and administer the HAGAR in exam in our shop. We will have the Exam writing on Tuesday May 5th in the evening in the Shop in Cochrane. We will send out the time to those that confirm.

The reason this exam is SPECIAL is because you need to have passed it in order to fly XC in Canada as well as to complete your HPAC Advanced Rating. If you have any interest in becoming an Instructor you also need to have passed this exam.

Doug Skye HPAC Senior Instructor will be doing a VERY Important Study session on Tuesday, April 28th at 7pm. He will be covering everything needed to pass the HAGAR exam as well as many of the questions on the HPAC exams. The cost for the study session which includes all the copying is 40$.

HAGAR STUDY SESSION:
Date: Tuesday April 28th at 7pm
Location: Muller Shop in Cochrane
Cost:40$ cash paid on the night of the Session
Please RSVP fly@mullerwindsports.com if attending

HAGAR EXAM WRITING:

Please RSVP to fly@mullerwindsports.com if your coming for this exam writing
Please Bring:
Ruler, Pencil. Paper, Calculator, Medical Declaration, Identification
Please bring a photo copy of your drivers Licence or passport or BOTH

 

From Transport Canada
Before we can have a candidate take the exam, we do need to see picture ID, and if they already have an aviation medical or pilot licence, or have taken an exam before, we will need their file number.  If you have a photocopier on site, we will take copies of the ID for new applicants while we are there. 
There is no fee for this exam, but candidates must have a Category 1, 3 or 4 medical in order to take the exam.  If they hold a valid medical they will need to show proof, if not, they can fill out  a Medical Declaration for the Category 4 on-site.  I will bring some forms, and the forms are available online at:

If you would like to come out for the evening session please call the student phone at 4pm that same day at 403-804-8373. If you would like to try and come out for a morning session please call the day before at 4pm to the student phone number so we can make sure there is an Instructor here for the morning.

We ask that you please do NOT leave messages on the student phone number and please do NOT text the student phone as that is a cell phone that gets passed to the Instructor on duty. If you have any questions regarding your lessons please call 403-932-6760.
