Have you ever dreamt of casting off the weight of the world and soaring effortlessly like an eagle in the sky, the landscape unfurling like a giant map beneath you? Make your dream a reality with the Vancouver Island Soaring Centre.

Our Transport Canada Certified pilots will carry you aloft in our state-of-the-art, two-seat glider. Seated up front, you will be surrounded by spectacular views of the Beaufort Mountains, crystal-clear freshwater lakes and waterfalls, ocean inlets and the rugged coastline of Vancouver Island.

The Vancouver Island Soaring Centre welcomes you 7 days a week from April to the end of September, and into October (weather permitting).

The VISC is nestled in the beautiful Alberni Valley, just minutes past the town of Port Alberni on the road to the Pacific Rim National Park, Tofino and Ucluelet.

We are located at Port Alberni Regional Airport, approximately 8 km (5 miles) west of Port Alberni on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Looking for more information or to book a flight? Give us a call at 1-(250)-667-3591 , or send us an e-mail. Feel free to drop by our hangar at the Port Alberni airport any day the sun is out, from May to September. We’re based next to the white dome hangar – if the gate is open but no one is there, please give us a call, and someone will meet you there shortly to escort you to the runway.
