Easily find that perfect soaring site
Perhaps you're looking to experience the thrill of flying in a sailplane for the first time, or perhaps you're a seasoned glider pilot looking to explore different sites from where to fly. Either way, this interactive map is designed to help you find that perfect soaring site.
The map features over 140 soaring locations across the U.S.A. and more than 180 SSA Commercial Operations and SSA Chapters. Each location has MapQuest® directions, and where available, AirNav airport details.
Advanced search criteria
If you're looking for a soaring operation that will cater to a specific need then try the text-only version of "Where to Fly?". Here you can enter specific criteria that must be matched (such as cross country instruction) or perform a full text search on the soaring site description or sailplane equipment list (e.g. find all soaring operations across the USA where winch launching and a Duo-Discus sailplane are both available).
We hope that this map will help you find that perfect soaring site, and may all your thermals be boomers!
