Welcome to the Edmonton Soaring Club
you ever wonder what it would be like to fly in a sailplane? If words
such as "freedom", "solitude", and "quiet"
come to mind, you would be right!
Soaring or gliding is a form of recreational flight using motorless aircraft. A glider is launched by towing it with a powered airplane. The glider pilot then releases at altitude and searches for atmospheric lift to stay aloft.
If you think that this sounds like fun, then you're right. Our members
fly throughout the spring, summer, and fall whenever the weekend weather
allows. Many visitors come to see us, watch the pilots, and maybe even
come on up in one of our 2-seat gliders for an Introductory Flight.
The ESC was incorporated in 1957 as
a non-profit society. Our club can teach you how to fly gliders,
and rent gliders to you when you are licensed for your ongoing enjoyment.
