COVID-19 Update: Due to the ongoing pandemic, we’re operating using modified scheduling procedures, modified operational procedures and we’re not offering one-day memberships. Members should check their email for details, and we ask that prospective members be patient while working with us.

Welcome to the Sanford Soaring Club!
Have you ever wanted to soar above southern Maine, playing with the hawks and eagles, with nothing but the sound of the wind whistling past your ears?
The Sanford Soaring Club is a non-profit club, operated by its members purely for the joy of soaring. We are offering a few different membership options, with special ultra-low rates for student members willing to help out with sweat equity!
We’re based at the Sanford Regional Airport (KSFM) in York County, Maine. (Just a little more than an hour north of Boston).
You don’t need to be a glider pilot to join. Our team of volunteer instructors are ready and able to help you learn to fly gliders.
Soaring for Families
Imagine a place where your kids play outside, surrounded by good role models. Imagine if they were to participate in all kinds of projects and learn responsibility. Imagine if you were there with them… except when you were off soaring.
At Sanford Soaring, our goal is to build a great community for the entire family. Where math and science are applied daily in fun and exciting ways, where professionalism and friendliness are a way of life and where great memories are formed. To learn more about becoming a member, send us a message!
We’re not a commercial operation, so we’re unable to offer glider rides to the general public. But a one-day prospective membership includes a demonstration flight so you can try out soaring for yourself before deciding. Contact us to set up a time if you’re interested!
