Ground school classes taught by FAA licensed instructors.
Instructional flights by our FAA licensed instructors.

And NO, you don't need any previous flying experience to join.
Our FAA licensed instructors will make you feel at home up there in the sky while teaching you the art of flying overlooking the beautiful Catskill mountains.

Our instructors do well with those new to flying, as well as transitioning power pilots.  

The Nutmeg Soaring Association Inc. is a private non-profit club organized in 1956 to provide equipment and instruction to members at low cost and to encourage the sport of soaring.  The club is a volunteer organization and in no way resembles a commercial operation. There is no paid staff. Flight instructors and tow pilots volunteer their services and members run the ground operation. Flight times cannot be reserved. The club is looking for members who wish not only to take up the sport of soaring, but will contribute their time and skills to run a successful and safe operation.
