We own a beautiful 125-acre private turf gliderport in Hilltown, PA (Bucks County) devoted exclusively to soaring and a modern all fiberglass fleet. Our longest runway is approximately 3,000 feet long.

We provide primary and advanced instruction and promote Cross Country.

The Oklahoma Soaring Association (OSA) operates at the Hinton Municipal Airport in Hinton Oklahoma just west of Oklahoma City.

We’ve been flying gliders in Oklahoma since the 1960’s! Operating as a member owned club, we have 4 club gliders, a tow plane and many privately owned gliders.

For flight training, or cross country/skill development, OSA is a great option to pursue gliding, and the Proving Grounds stands to help novice OSA pilots develop their task flying skills in a supportive and outcome-oriented training environment!
