Application for Membership

We sincerely hope that you decide to join the Minnesota Soaring Club. To get the process started, please read this page and contact the person listed below.

Obligations of MSC Club Members
"This is a working and volunteer club in that the members act as ground crew, tow pilots, and flight instructors and perform other tasks necessary for the club to conduct flight operations. Members contribute according to their individual abilities and their licensed qualifications. Part of the benefit of belonging to the club is to share the experience of soaring as well as the opportunity to pursue individual goals.

Instructors volunteer their time to student operations on weekend mornings; in turn, the students arrive early to prepare the sailplanes for the day's flights. New members should plan to attend monthly meetings and participate in club activities. All members must attend an annual safety meeting."

Waiting List
We currently do not have a waiting list for new members.  We are cautious to limit the number of new members due to limited flight instructor capacity.  All our instructors are volunteers, and we don't want them to feel overloaded.  If we allow too many new members into the club at one time, our current members will not be able to get as much access to instructor's time for check-outs and instructional flights as they desire.  We apologize for the inconvenience of having to wait to join the club - especially since most people are very excited to start soaring as soon as possible.  We hope you understand that we want you to join the club, and we look forward to sharing the skies over southern Minnesota with you.
