Flying Gliders on Long Island since 1955

Hello and welcome to the The Long Island Soaring Association Web Site. We are a soaring club based at Brookhaven Calabro Airport in Shirley Long Island. We get together every weekend to fly our sailplanes, and to teach, and learn about the sport of soaring. We also offer Power Pilot training in our Cessna C-172 at a very reasonable rate. The club, an SSA chapter, is a non-profit club, incorporated in 1955 by some soaring enthusiasts. As a non-profit club our aim is to promote the sport of soaring, and make it affordable, to all . We also strive to promote the science of airmanship, air navigation, the science of meteorology and related subjects.

Interested in learning to fly? Joining our club is a great option. It's a great community where members seek to help each other mastering the art of soaring.

So if you ever wanted to learn how to pilot a sailplane, or would like to find out more about soaring then we invite you to come out and take an introductory sailplane ride.
