Jay began hanging around the airfield at the age of seven and started taking lessons as soon as he was able to reach the rudder pedals. He has been flying gliders continuously since 2001 and has a particular passion for cross-country. He is an active instructor and towpilot at the Winnipeg Gliding Club, has flown in several competitions and was the junior OLC champion for Canada for several seasons. Jay owns a share in an ASW-19 with two other partners and enjoys flying cross-country whenever possible. To fund his addiction, Jay works in business development at an aerospace company that overhauls jet engines, and enjoys playing hockey and golf when he can’t be in the air.
