Join our Group!

All of our FAA-certified flight instructors and tow pilots are completely dedicated to the sport of soaring and volunteer their skills and knowledge in the service of all members. Thus there are no instructor OR tow-pilot fees (but you can certainly throw them a bone once in a while).

If you are thinking about taking a ride, or if you are just curious about the sport, please feel free to stop by and watch the gliders being launched. You might just be tempted to learn how to fly!

Glider Demonstration Flights (General Public/Non-Group Members):

  • $85.00 (one flight, tow to 3000 feet, maximum 30 minutes)

Gift certificates are available by mail.
