Welcome to MASA
The Mid-Atlantic Soaring Association invites you to experience the magic of flight and learn to soar.
The Mid-Atlantic Soaring Association (M-ASA), one of the country's largest soaring clubs, was founded in 1952. We are conveniently located between Harrisburg, Baltimore, and Washington, DC.
M-ASA operates at our own airfield (W73) in Fairfield, Pennsylvania, just north of the Pennsylvania-Maryland border and south of Gettysburg. W73 offers access to thermal, ridge, and wave soaring year round.
The club fosters and promotes all phases of soaring instruction in the Mid-Atlantic Region, from beginning instruction, through advanced training, cross-country flight, and sanctioned competition.
The organization is volunteer supported and provides it’s members with flight instruction, tow services and gliders. Youth memberships support community activities and enable student aged members a means to obtain affordable flight training. Youth members may apply for M-ASA scholarships. M-ASA also provides other community education programs through Open Houses and other outreach, focused at enlightening the general public on the topic of Soaring.
Most importantly, M-ASA’s goals are to provide its members with fun, affordable, flying and the satisfaction of introducing people to the magic of soaring.
Mid-Atlantic Soaring Association is a chapter of the Soaring Society of America (SSA) and a non-profit and charitable organization.
Whether you are just interested in finding out what soaring is about, or are an experienced pilot, come join us to experience the great sport of soaring.
Soaring… Experience the Magic!
