AMA CHARTERED CLUB # 1178
2014 Soaring Season
The Lancaster Area Soaring Society was formed in 1972 and is a friendly group of over 30 radio control enthusiasts that fly a wide variety of silent, radio controlled aircraft from our fields in Lancaster, PA. and, from what some consider, the best East Coast slope site located on the Susquehanna River in Columbia, PA. We have members that fly Hand Launch, 2-meter, Standard, Open, Scale, Slope, and international competition sailplane classes in many different skill levels from beginner to expert. Gliders and electric powered aircraft are the only types of R/C aircraft allowed on all LASS fields. For more info see the LASS Field Rules.
In addition to participation by our members in contests all over the East Coast sponsored by the Eastern Soaring League, we hold monthly contests within the club and sponsor many AMA or ESL sanctioned soaring events throughout the season.
LASS also has members in the '65th Squadron', a group of senior soarers from another R/C club in the area, that meet on Monday mornings for breakfast, 'hangar talk', and, weather permitting, a day of flying at some fine field or slope in the area. If you are interested, contact Dave Harris for details and how to get involved.
If you are thinking about getting started in silent flight or you are already an experienced 'glider guider' looking for a great place to fly and meet others interested in your hobby - you'll find what you are looking for at LASS!
