COVID19

The RVSS Board is actively monitoring the Government of Ontario regulations related to COVID19. Note that the club may impose additional restrictions to address the unique circumstances that apply to two-person glider flights. In particular, a glider cockpit is a confined, shared space with limited ventilation; the safety of our volunteer pilots and instructors is paramount. You should anticipate that proof of vaccination will be required for instructional or introductory flights.

Members will be informed of policy updates on the club email list. The public should monitor this page for developments. We are anxious to resume normal operations and will communicate news right here (and at @rvssca on Twitter).

Current club status – July 9, 2021.
