Truckee Tahoe Soaring Association (TTSA) a 501c3 non-profit, is a world class soaring operation at the Truckee Tahoe Airport in Truckee California, offering scenic adventure flights , instruction, youth programs and pilot services.
We generally operate mid May through the end of September.
Our Mission is to advance the science, art, and safety of soaring flight in the Northern California and Nevada region with a specific focus on inspiring our area youth’s interest in STEM - and positioning them to be the next generation of pilots, scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and other leaders serving our communities and society.
Our Vision is to be the preeminent glider training and flight facility in the northern California/Nevada region.
Soaring has been an organized activity at Truckee airport since the early 1960’s. Back then, various fixed base operators managed glider operations for private glider pilots until Soar Truckee, Inc. was incorporated in the early 1980’s. This organization provided glider rides to the public, gave flight instruction, and launched private pilots in their gliders until 2016, when the corporation was re-organized as Truckee Tahoe Soaring Association, and as a 501C3 non-profit corporation.
We are a grateful recipient of funding and other support from the following organizations:
As a 501c3 non-profit corporation, the dedicated members of the Board of Directors serve without compensation.
