Soaring Operations

Akaflieg SLO connects Cal Poly students with flight training opportunities in gliders. As a club, we travel from San Luis Obispo to Avenal nearly every Saturday to soar, socialize, and work on various club projects. We have partner with the Central California Soaring Association, who provides affordable glider rental, tows, and instruction for our members. We aim to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for students to gain hands-on experience with aviation.
