What Cypress Soaring is about
Cypress Soaring Glider Club, located in Southern California, can help you realize your dream of flying a sailplane. Whether it's a one-time glider ride, or a lifetime of soaring adventures, Cypress Soaring has what you're looking for. Cypress Soaring was established in 1969 at Cypress College, in Cypress, California. It was incorporated as a non-profit corporation dedicated to teaching and promoting soaring.
Club aircraft are based at Skylark Field in Lake Elsinore. Skylark Field is convenient to all Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego county locations.
Cypress Club instructors are available usually one day each weekend, so flight instruction is available to members about once a week. We also offer more than just flight instruction. We are a group of people with interests like your own. We conduct regular club meetings once a month. We also have social events, BBQs, safaris to other airports, and we offer a great opportunity to make new friends. People of all ages and a wide variety of backgrounds are members of Cypress Soaring. For an introductory sailplane ride, see our "Rides" page!
The Orange County Soaring Association (OCSA) was a successful glider club based in Southern California for more than 50 years. In 2014, OCSA ceased operations, and its assets were acquired by the Cypress Soaring Club. For historical information about OCSA, we have provided this link to their former web site. This page will open in a new window.
