About the Club

Soaring is a wonderful sport. It’s a great way to expose kids to math and science. It teaches people of all ages about diligence and responsibility. And, let’s be honest, it’s just good for the soul. Soaring is to flying as sailing is to boating.

Sanford Soaring is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to sharing our love of unpowered flight. We provide the infrastructure (including gliders) that allows our members to enjoy our favorite pasttime.

We also aim to foster a membership community, including pilots (of all levels), student pilots, families, crews and anyone else who is interested. Our goal is to promote training, flight safety and social fellowship.

Finally, it shall be the aim of this Club to help provide, on a non-profit basis, better soaring facilities in including participation in sponsorship of soaring contests and to promote soaring locally and nationally.

Welcome to Sanford Soaring. We’re looking forward to seeing you around!
