Join Downeast Soaring

Dues for the Downeast Soaring Club (DSC) are $12 per year. Our dues are used to support club activities and the club's equipment. Members receive a monthly newsletter and access to the Members section of the Web Site. The Members section contains links to all of the clubs news letters in PDF format, lists of all current members, and more. In addition, members may also use the club's two winches and a retriever for thermal flying.

We are an active group of flyers with events year round. The winter in the northeast is cold, and great for slope! Summer time events include our no-host lobster slope meets. These meets feature fresh boiled lobster from the local lobster shack. Eat and then walk 100 feet to a picturesque beach for an afternoon of slope and combat. Past events include Soaring Conventions featuring well known hobby persona. Our conventions have attracted attendees from as far away as California.

Join now! We have instructors that can teach you to fly any style of glider: Thermal Duration, F3B, Aero-Tow, Slope Soaring, Slope Combat, Scale, Power Slope Scale, Hand Launch, and Electric. The newer EPP (Extruded Poly Propelene) gliders are virtually unbreakable and allow new flyers to learn how to fly faster without the fear of damaging the airplane.
