Introduction to Soaring

Ok you’re not really a glider pilot or passenger and not be certain you even want to be.  But, this looks like a nice break from same old routine, doesn't it ? It is a great experience for everyone's bucket list ! 

The Life to the Max Show video featuring Don Ingraham's Cross Country Soaring Operation in Minnesota provides a nice introduction to soaring. 

Airplane Pilots are often curious, and often initially uncomfortable, about flying without a motor. The Aviators TV Series filmed the first glider flights of an experienced powered airplane pilot at the York Soaring Association.  This experienced pilot's reaction to his soaring experience is reassuring. Many CISS members are power pilots who have discovered the challenges and enjoyment of soaring. You may want to join them.

Club member's Videos and Photos  provide a view of the local Central Indiana Soaring Society activities at the Alexandria Airport.

Information on scheduling your glider ride or flying lesson is available at Experience a Scenic Flight or Flying Lesson .

These flights make an excellent gifts for any occasion, or just a special treat for yourself. Gift Certificates are available. 

There is no obligation or high pressure sales tactics to pressure you to fly. Glider people tend to be laid back and relaxed, so just come out to enjoy some fresh air and fun at the airport. A flight is available if you decide to experience soaring. 

We will look forward to meeting you at the airport soon!
