The Durango Soaring Club ceased operations last Fall. It was a successful business for 25 years, but they decided that was enough. Don't plan on soaring on your next Durango visit, but please visit anyway.

I have 46 years and 14,000+ hours of flying time but when I drove by the Durango Soaring Club and saw that beautiful German Sail Plane, I felt like my first trip to the airport when I was a kid! My instructor flew the same type of Jet aircraft that I did so we hit it off and in no... More

Awesome sights and cool weather mornings made for a smooth ride. Loved every minute! It went by so fast ( I think it was a 20-25 minute ride) it seemed we were landing right away. Very courteous and professional pilots and staff, highly recommended!

This was another bucket list item we two young folks (pushing 70) looked forward to. We'd tried before but weather or some other obstacle came up. We called DSC for a reservation. The lady could not have been nicer. She offered advice on the best hours for a full ride then booked us The pilots were gracious and provided a... More

My husband and 6 year old son went on this trip. They had an amazing time. Observers can take pics from the ground or a platform above one of the buildings. The people were extremely warm and friendly, genuinely glad to have your business. I saw their glider go high above the mountains. My family had a fantastic time and... More

I saw the sign from the road and pulled in for the off chance of my first ever experience of gliding. I asked for the longest time in the air and it was worth it. The staff were some of the friendliest people i met in America. The pilot was brilliant. The views were incredible. A truly great way to... More

Both my wife and I have wanted to try gliding, and this was a great place to try it. We stopped by without reservations and got right in! We were able to both be in the air at the same time and take pictures of each other while in the air. It was AMAZING! My pilot offered a little more... More

I had always wanted to experience a glider ride and what a beautiful place like Durango to give it a try. Called and scheduled a time. Upon arrival I signed in and immediately was taken to the glider. I was made to feel very comfortable and they were great about answering any questions I had. The pilot had over 30... More

I decided to try my first glider ride here last summer. I took the 20 minute ride in the late morning when the thermals were moderate which, for me, was a perfect time to go. As a precaution, I took a motion-sickness pill before I went and I think it helped because there is some sudden ups & downs. Very... More

My 8 year old daughter went on a 20 minute (closer to 40 minutes) glider ride. She enjoyed it and would like to go back next time we are in Durango.
