Welcome to Pittsburgh Soaring Association

Experience Silent Flight

Since March 1964, soaring enthusiasts have been flying gliders at Pittsburgh Soaring. We are approximately 40 members who maintain and share a small fleet of aircraft. A Soaring Society of America member, we offer primary flight instruction for beginners as well as more advanced instruction for competitive soaring pilots.
