Learn To Soar

Soar Truckee provides certified flight instruction, tow-planes, and a complete soaring educational curriculum. We use flight training manuals from GliderBooks.com. An introductory lesson will allow you a real, "hands-on" flying experience, and will give you the opportunity to ask your instructor any questions you may have about the sport.

For the   Beginner

 

You can fly by yourself, "solo", as young as 14 years of age, but you can begin training as young as 12. 

 

Typically, 30 to 50 glider flights, and some ground instruction are required to solo.

 

With frequent lessons and dedication, you could solo in one to two months.

Contact us to schedule a flight or drop by and chat with one of our CFIG's during the soaring season.

Introductory Lessons

 

It's a scenic flight adventure with a twist.

You will fly with a Certified Flight Instructor who will do the take-off, tow and landing.

 

After demonstrating some flight maneuvers, you will get to fly the glider!

 

After the flight, your instructor will record your flight in your (new) log book.

Gliders are extremely efficient flying machines without engines. They are elegant, simple, and sleek and very quiet, the only noises being the variometer audio, occasional radio chatter, and the gentle whoosh of the wind.
