The staff and members of the Williams Soaring Center (WSC) invite you to join us in our appreciation of pure flight. We support and teach the principles of the Soaring Society of America (SSA), which is dedicated to the art and science of motor-less flight both for pleasure and competition, emphasizing a maximum degree of safety through professional training. We encourage participation in the SSA badge program, local, regional and national competitions, and record soaring.
All About Us
Williams Soaring provides a private airport with a 2300 ft paved runway, pilot bunk rooms with kitchenette, heating, air conditioning, bathrooms & shower. We have a pilot lounge with a DUATS weather computer, training and briefing room. We also provide glider trailer storage.
We are located near the Southern edge of the Mendocino Mountains, well known for fantastic summer and fall cross country flying. Also, the airport's valley situation creates favorable conditions for spring and early summer adventures. Mountain Wave is also encountered when the "westerlies" blow, usually post-frontal in winter and early spring. And finally the famous Maxwell shear is a phenomenon in the summer. This intrusion of marine air into the heated Sacramento Valley air mass is known for creating great soaring conditions and you'll find it right on our doorstep.
