Alberta Zone Director
Jordan took his first glider flight in Ontario in 1995, a gift from his aunt that would cement a love of flying for a lifetime. He then joined the Air Cadet Program and moved out west to the mountains. A few years later, Jordan found the Cu Nim Gliding Club in 2010 where he shares his passion for learning and exploring XC flying. He is excited to further develop his skill set and knowledge base in the realm of wave and XC soaring. Jordan has been a professional motorcycle instructor for 10 years and hopes to share that safety culture while serving on the SAC Board.
Pacific Zone Director
Bruce has been fascinated with aircraft from an early age, but only after a familiarization flight in 1969 did he find his passion – the glider climbed, without an engine! Since 1983 he has pursued that passion to extract as much energy as possible from the atmosphere and to play chess with the sky, focusing on long flights in his wooden Standard Austria, the Scarlet Lady, and his Discus, Kilo Lima Lima. Not a tow pilot or an instructor (Class 4 medical), Bruce hopes he can contribute to the sport of soaring in Canada as a member of the SAC Board. He is retired and living on the West Coast, but is a bit of a soaring vagabond, enjoying flying at new sites. When not soaring, he can be found at the Canadian Museum of Flight at Langley Airport, polishing old aircraft, and promoting soaring to the aviation-minded folks he meets.
