Edmonton Soaring Club Proving Grounds

The Edmonton Soaring Club (ESC) operates off of a grass strip near the town of Chipman, Alberta, northeast of the city of Edmonton.

ESC is an innovative club with a number of tremendous programs to develop pilots, especially youth – the host of the oversubscribed ‘Western Canada Youth Development Camp’. Leaders at ESC liked the idea of a program to support XC pilot development, especially one that can stand the test of time, and requires little to no management by members with too much management obligation as it is.

ESC uses 3 triangle tasks that build on each other to define their Proving Grounds using the club as a start/finish point and 3 distinct turnpoints per task.
