The Refugio Soaring Circle is based at Rooke Field, Refugio, TX.
The Club is a nonprofit and the CFIG’s as well as the Tow Pilots are all volunteers.
Club aircraft include a 2-33, a 1-34, and an IS28B2 Lark. We tow with a Super Cub.
The Tucson Soaring Club (TuSC) was formed in November of 1967 and operated out of Ryan Field. There were 25 charter members. In 1983, the club moved to Marana Number 5 Auxiliary Field (a field used during WWII). The members cleared the brush for runways and built the hangars. The field was named El Tiro Gliderport after the road which leads to the airport.
Black Forest Soaring Society was founded in the spring of 1986. The original location was just northeast of Colorado Springs. This site was legendary for the number of high altitude flights achieved in the Pikes Peak wave. That airport was closed in 1986, and the club moved to Kelly Air Park.
