background

It is our aim to provide opportunities for flight in relatively modern, well-maintained sailplanes at attractive soaring locations for very reasonable costs. Silverado operates three dual place sailplanes - a Grob 103 and a Diamond Turbo Motor Glider.


There are no per hour or per flight charges for the use of the Grob gliders, just tow fees for tows obtained from the FBO's where our gliders are based. Silverado wants to encourage plenty of flying to maintain proficiency. There is an hourly charge in the Dimond Motor Glider while the engine is operating.  Certified instructors are also available at each base we operate from.


All gliders are club equipped with radios, transponders, oxygen systems and parachutes.


Silverado Soaring is one of Northern Nevada & Northern Californias premiere soaring clubs: modern fiberglass gliders, minimum hassle, inexpensive.

AOPA RUSTY PILOT SEMINAR

RE-SCHEDULED FOR JULY 9, 2022

12: PM MINDEN AIRPORT

INFO: KEN: 775-846-9151

GET BACK INTO THE LEFT SEAT!


There is no better time than now to consider knocking the rust off your license and getting back into the left seat.


Over 10,000 pilots have been through the AOPA Rusty Pilots program.


Remember, once a pilot – always a pilot. All you will need is a Flight Review – no check ride required. Just some quality time (minimum one hour) with a CFI so you can flex your skills and you're good.


The best time to get back in the left seat is yesterday. The next best time is July 9th. 2022 from 12:00pm to 3:00 pm. at the Minden Airport.
