McGill Students' Flying Club

In a short span, McGill Students' Flying Club has become one of Canada’s largest student-run aviation organizations. Operating from McGill University in Montreal, McGill Students' Flying Club provides a platform for its members to engage in flight training and other aviation-related activities. Our mission is to promote aviation and aerospace fields and foster a growing community of pilots and aviation enthusiasts.

Be part of a community that shares your passion!

Flight Training

In partnership with Harv's Air, we offer discounts on industry-leading online ground school courses. The self-paced online ground school courses will prepare you for everything found on Transport Canada's exams.
We are partners with our local flight school CPAQ.AERO to ensure a smooth experience for both aspiring and current pilots looking for flight training.


We provide countless opportunities for aviation enthusiasts of every level to take part in activities. From flying airplanes to jumping out of airplanes, we have something to offer everyone who is looking to explore their passion for aviation. Our team members can help you find a local flight school for a fun flight over the downtown area, or to help you on your way to a license.

A Community of Aviators

Beyond our activities and events, we are a place of assembly for all members of the aviation community. This is a place for aviation enthusiasts to meet industry professional; a place for aircraft mechanics to meet commercial pilots; a place to find others that share your passion.
