      Welcome to
Mid-Georgia Soaring Association

Mid-Georgia Soaring Association (MGSA) is o­ne of the oldest and largest soaring clubs in the southeastern
United States. We have approximately 60 members with varying degrees of experience from numerous hours of cross country experience to students in primary training. We are located about 35 miles east of Atlanta in Monroe GA. We fly most weekends at Monroe-Walton County Airport (D73), weather permitting.
Returning glider pilots and power transition pilots are encouraged to come visit and see our operations first hand. We are confident you will be impressed with (MGSA) operations.
Discovery flight are available for individuals who would like to experience the joy of soaring flight. All flights are with FAA certified commercial pilots. Hit the 'Discovery Rides' link o­n the left to get more information.
Flight instruction is also available to club members by FAA Certified Flight Instructors (CFIG).

Gliders... [will be] the freight trains of the air.... We can visualize a locomotive plane leaving LaGuardia Field towing a train of six gliders in the very near future. By having the load thus divided it would be practical to unhitch the glider that must come down in Philadelphia as the train flies over that place -- similarly unhitching the loaded gliders for Washington, for Richmond, for Charleston, for Jacksonville, as each city is passed -- and finally the air locomotive itself lands in Miami. During that process it has not had to make any intermediate landings, so that it has not had to slow down.
