Soaring Contest Resources

What is involved in learning to solo?

To solo means to fly by yourself. You must be at least 14 years old . We can begin training at the age of 12. A physical exam is not required, but you must have no medical problem that would prevent safe operation of the glider. Before you solo, your instructor must certify that you have learned everything necessary for safe flight and landing.
