Welcome to Oklahoma Soaring Association. Dedicated to preserving and advancing the art of soaring, we welcome all to experience it with us.
Oklahoma Soaring Association glider club flies out of Hinton, OK (208)
We have 2 club gliders, a tow plane, many privately owned gliders and also a winch.
Come learn to fly with us. Gliding is a great way to get started flying and Oklahoma has excellent thermal and ridge soaring opportunities. It's not uncommon for gliders to climb to 12,000 feet or more and travel 300 miles in a single flight out of Hinton.
We fly year-round in Oklahoma. The summer months between April and October provide the best thermal soaring, while the winter months provide an excellent training environment.
Gliding takes no special skills and only requires a love of flight. Did you know a properly trained student pilot can solo a glider at just 14-years old?
