Walkalong Glider Meetups!

What’s a Walkalong Glider?

It’s a small airplane that flies perpetually as you follow it around. I had seen them around the internet but had the pleasure being introduced to them during a visit to Slater Harrison a while back.

Come in from the cold and make the coolest paper and foam gliders (materials provided). Meet new people and learn a new skill. All ages welcome! It’s an informal and social environment so be sure to bring your friends!

If you’d like an event please contact me or purchase gliders for your own event.

There are more pictures and video from previous walkalong glider events. Also Ottawa Citizen coverage.
