FALL AND WINTER A GREAT TIME FOR HAGAR!
The fall and winter are an excellent time to study for that all-important HAGAR examination, the single only item required of hang glider and paraglider pilots by Transport Canada, in order to be able to fly in airspace, a great privilege. It is an exam that should be taken by every pilot, regardless of rating level.
André Nadeau, HPAC's Transport Canada Liaison, has updated the HAGAR Study Guide on this website and has added a mapping section. You can find it at
PID 95. It is easy to follow and is an excellent preparation for the HAGAR exam which can be scheduled at any fixed-wing flight school in your area. Please contact the Office if there are questions about the process.
