Welcome to the Brandywine Soaring Association. We are a non-profit, member owned and operated soaring club located at New Garden Airfield in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Our goal is to promote the sport of soaring. Whether you're new to flying and want to go for an introductory flight, a power pilots transitioning wanting to try a new challenge or an experienced glider pilot - we've got a place for you at BSA.

We are a 100% volunteer organization. This includes our flight instructors, tow pilots and field managers. 

What is soaring - Soaring is the sport of riding air currents to gain altitude which then is used to glide some distance through still or sinking air, to another source of lift where the process is repeated. In this manner, modern sailplanes (high performance gliders) have soared well over 2,000 km (1,200 miles) in a single day.

Sebastian Solo's on June 12, 2024. Not only does he solo, he takes a second flight that last 70 minutes, earning him both "A" and "B" badges the same day.

Congratulations, Sebastian!
