Welcome to the tutorial section of our website.  The articles here are intended as a resource for our fellow soaring pilots, as an introduction to some aspects of soaring that may not have occurred to future soaring pilots and to help you decide if learning to fly sailplanes might be something you'd like to do.


As such, the material on these "Tutorials" pages is not copyrighted and may be reprinted free of charge in your club newsletter or other aviation publication; all we ask is that you credit soarthesierra.com as the source of the material.


From time to time we will use these pages to address various topics of interest to the gliding community or to potential sailplane pilots.  We welcome your suggestions regarding future articles on topics of interest to you.
