We have been flying over the beautiful Wabash River valley for over 45 years. We are an educational soaring club, dedicated to helping others learn the art and skills of soaring safely.
The club owns a fleet of six club gliders, three of which are two place trainers as well as two tow planes. There are also over 25 private sailplanes based at the field. The club has two hangars with a clubroom attached to the main hangar, and a climate controlled shop for maintaining the club fleet. The shop is used also for restoration of member projects.
We fly mainly on weekends, weather permitting, from March through November. Weekday flying is often possible as well.
WVSA is a chapter of the Soaring Society of America
Many WVSA members are involved with the Vintage Sailplane Association
and are active in the restoration and flying of older gliders and sailplanes.
Over a long Fathers Day weekend, WVSA hosts the annual Midwest Vintage/Classic Sailplane Regatta. Many pilots bring vintage and classic gliders from all over the country for this annual event.
Visitors are always welcome at the gliderport. We are located on the Lawrenceville-Vincennes Airport. Follow the main road into the airport, bearing left at each place the road divides.
Rides are available at the club's discretion at rates that cover the costs of the filght.
