We can use 7 different takeoffs on the mountain with exposure: N - N/E - W - S - E at around 400M MSL

2 of the north takeoffs have wood ramps, and west and south takeoffs are cliff launch (H3)

The main LZ is north of Yamaska, clear of rotors, and can be reached from most takeoffs easily.

Flying site

The competition will be foot-launched.

We can use 7 different takeoffs on the mountain with exposure: N - N/E - W - S - E at around 400M MSL

2 of the north takeoffs have wood ramps, and west and south takeoffs are cliff launch (H3)

The main LZ is north of Yamaska, clear of rotors, and can be reached from most takeoffs easily.

We will be flying in the flatlands around Mont Yamaska. The prevailing winds are usually SW, and can take us very far (200k) across the Saint Lawrence valley. There are quite a few lakes and forests to cross though. If the winds are light, we can do great triangle tasks as well. The crops in May are almost inexistent, so LZ's can be found everywhere.

Contact us if you have any questions about flying at Mont Yamaska.

Accommodation and Activities

It will be possible to camp around the mountain but it will certainly be quite cold. Granby and Ange Gardien are two options to look at, for motels, hotels and even camp sites. AirBnb is also a great option. A dinner party will be held on Saturday night. Informations about tourism in our region will also be provided.

Il sera possible de camper, mais il fera probablement assez froid la nuit. Vous pouvez trouver des hotels ou motels à Granby ou à l'Ange Gardien. Airbnb est aussi une excellente option. Un souper festif aura lieu Samedi soir, et les informations pertinentes par rapport au tourisme dans notre belle région seront fournies.
