Welcome to the Michigan Gliding and Soaring!


Michigan Gliding and Soaring (MGS) is a soaring club affiliated with the University of Michigan open to students, faculty, and staff of the University, and their families. It is registered with the Michigan Student Assembly.

Those who wish to fly on a regular basis may become students and study to become licensed glider pilots. Pilots and instructors with powered ratings can add a glider rating in a short period of time, which also satisfies the biannual flight review or certified flight instructor renewal requirements. During the winter months, MGS holds ground school study group meetings approximately every two weeks to help members prepare for their knowledge tests.

Michigan Gliding and Soaring is affiliated with the Kitty Hawk Soaring Club (KSC) in Manchetser, Michigan. We use Kitty Hawk aircraft and equipment until such time as the club has enough funds to purchase its own. KSC currently owns a Schweitzer 2-33 and a Schweitzer 1-26. Plans are under way to purchase more gliders.
