Founders

The McGill Students' Flying Club was founded at the McGill Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS) in March of 2012 by (in alphabetical order): Farzan Subhani, Guy Haddad, Joe Hayek, Kari Rosteck, Sebastien Mezeret, and Salman Hashmi. Then EUS VP Clubs, Harold Day, came up with the idea of a flying club after discovering records of a club that existed at McGill in the 1950s. This predecessor of MSFC, The Flying and Navigation Club, particularly revolved around prospective navigators sharing and practicing various navigational techniques.
