About | Windy City Soaring Association


Windy City Soaring Association is a non-profit organization (club) dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of soaring (flying sailplanes a.k.a. gliders). 

We are based at Hinckley Airport (0C2) in the friendly village of Hinckley, Illinois, situated about fifty miles west of the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago.

More About Us

How it Works


With us you will be taking a glider ride in a modern two-seat, high performance glider. A commercial rated pilot will take you aloft soaring gracefully over the Illinois countryside. Try flying it yourself or sit back and enjoy the panoramic view.

Call today to reserve your flight. We also offer gift certificates for that special occasion. We operate on weekends April-November weather permitting.
