Welcome to Evergreen Soaring!
Evergreen Soaring is a not-for-profit flying club operating in Washington State. We fly gliders, also known as sailplanes, and have joined together to own and operate the aircraft and equipment needed to enjoy our sport.
We are an association of diverse individuals with one thing in common: the love of soaring.
We operate out of the Arlington airport (near Seattle, Washington) year round. During the summer months, we keep some of our gliders in Ephrata (eastern Washington state). We also try to organize weekend trips to nearby airports like Concrete and Green Valley at least a couple of times each year. We promote the advancement of our members in the FAA licensing process, and provide cross country experience for those who wish it.
As a volunteer organization, we rely on club members to run the flight operation, fly the towplane, perform some of the maintenance on club aircraft, and participate in all facets of club operations, keeping costs low. Our members have a range of experience, from student pilots to competition pilots. Most of our members hold Private Pilot certificates, but we have a growing number of Commercial Pilots and Flight Instructors.
