New Membership Announced! - A Youth Membership was adopted at the Board's January 2018 meeting as it seeks to add more youth to our ranks. Memphis Soaring is a great place to introduce youth to aviation, especially if he or she is considering a career in aviation. Our instructors can help determine early on if they are suited for such a career as they work with the student. Full details are shown under the Membership tab above.
Board Meeting - Our next board meeting is on May 12, 2018 in the Hendrix Clubhouse at 9AM. Please note the earlier time than last month!
Fly-In! - MSS is having a Fly-In and cookout on May 19th from 10AM to 4PM...open to all. Drive in, fly-in, walk-in...whatever. Come enjoy the day, take a demo ride or just hang out on the porch. Flying in? Please see the Airport Info tab, above, for important considerations.
2018 Annual MaxFly - The club's annual MaxFly is June 1-10, 2018. On these days we operate every day and instructors are available for concentrated instruction to allow members to progress quickly.
Welcome to the Memphis Soaring web site. Whether you are new to aviation, looking to add a glider rating or are perhaps returning to flying after a prolonged absence we are glad you are here.
