As a power pilot you have already entered the world of flight which offers the joy and beauty of personal air travel. You've learned stick and rudder skills, navigation, energy management, weather, communications, judgment, and more. Now, step up your game and discover soaring. It is endlessly fascinating, always beautiful, intellectually stimulating, and exhilarating. Once you've soared you will never look at the sky in same way again. Soaring sharpens airmanship, confidence, weather awareness, and power-off emergency skills. Many of us fly power as well as pure sailplanes. You'll love it as much as we do.
