The Sandhill Soaring Club is a chapter of the Soaring Society of America. SSC conducts flight operations out of Richmond Field (FAA location identifier 69G) located at Gregory, Michigan. The club is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating members and the public in the sport of soaring. The club operates most weekends (weather permitting) from April thru November.
Sandhill Soaring Club is a cooperative, all-volunteer, organization that exists to provide an educational opportunity for its members to learn to fly gliders, and to continue to develop the skills necessary to be successful pilots.
Formed in 1984, the club has trained dozens of glider pilots, ranging in age from 14 to over 70. Many of these pilots have gone on to enjoy cross-country flying in gliders, and several have competed in soaring contests at the regional and national level.
The airport is near the nesting grounds of the Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis) from which we draw our name. Frequently, these magnificent birds can be seen on our field and in the vicinity of the airport.
