NFSS Membership

We Welcome New Members

Membership in The North Florida Soaring Society is open to anyone with the desire to learn and enjoy the art and technique of soaring. Sponsorship is typically the way that applications are processed, although NFSS frequently accepts open applications from pilots and non-pilots.

Spread your wings with us and experience the thrill of flight in a sailplane. It may just change the way you view aviation. You do not have to be a certificated pilot to join the NFSS. Introductory flights are available to prospective members.
