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.
The freedom and exhilaration of soaring are incomparable! By using currents of rising air for lift, you can fly hundreds of miles over several hours on a good soaring day.
Soaring is also known as gliding - one of the oldest forms of flying. People were flying gliders for many years before powered airplanes came about, including the Wright Brothers! In the early days, a glider-ride usually meant a short flight, probably launched from a hilltop. Today we fly sailplanes: high performance aircraft that can stay aloft for long periods of time, and all with no motor!
