Truckee-Tahoe Soaring Association (TTSA) is a 501c3  non-profit organization, and a world-class soaring operation at Truckee Tahoe Airport in Truckee California.  Charitable donations and grants cover a majority of the costs of our Youth STEM Academy programs which we offer free of charge or at minimal cost; we also rely on donations to cover some of our expenses for facilities, equipment, repairs, and other operations.  

The revenues that we receive from scenic adventure flights, instruction, tows, memberships, tie-downs, and other glider services are used to cover the operating expenses of these services, these revenues, along with charitable donations are also used to offset the expenses of our Youth STEM Academy programs.    

These are challenging economic times for TTSA as our operational and capital expenses continue to rise faster than the revenues we receive from adventure rides and other glider services. In 2023 we are also facing a significant lease increase along with costs for new equipment which could force us to limit operations and curtail programs.
