Custom Training

We offer custom training packages for FAA-certificated pilots who are not looking to obtain a glider certificate or rating, but rather just want to experience soaring, fly in a new and challenging environment and improve their flying skills without the pressures of having to pass a FAA checkride. Customized training packages can take many different forms. To explore possibilities, please call our office at 802-496-2290 or email us at We will adapt and customize your flight lessons to best suit your individual needs. If you are taking flight lessons at SSA, you can camp for free on the airfield, with 24/7 access to bathrooms. In order to camp alone, students must be 18 years or older.
