Organized in 1985, “VSA” was originally the logo of the Vacaville Soaring Association (VSA), but since we moved away from Vacaville in the 90’s and relocated in the Sacramento Valley, the “VSA” logo now represents the Valley Soaring Association (VSA).
We fly gliders/ sailplanes, either privately owned or ships that are rented from Williams Soaring Center (WSC). If you want to see what gliding and soaring is all about, browse our many VSA pages – see the list of over 100 of our web pages in the column to the right. If you want to take a flight or learn to fly, then contact WSC. Although many of our members do own their own gliders privately, the VSA does not own or operate any gliders or tow planes. We do not provide instruction. We are strictly a social organization. Our web presence was initially established in order to promote the sport, and particularly to lend support to Rex Mayes, then working for is father, at what used to be Lagoon Valley Soaring and has now morphed into the proud and professional organization of WSC. Rex is fulfilling the vision he has maintained since his 20’s and The VSA continues to proudly support that vision.
In operation for over 30 years, the VSA is thriving. Our primary means of communication between members is via The Forum, which is maintained by WSC. Messages and announcements independent of the Forum are sent directly to members when appropriate. The VSA maintains a web presence, and pages are updated as needed.
Note: A BIG thank you to a great friend of VSA, Larry Roberts. Larry is an IT professional and his assistance has been invaluable in the maintenance of the VSA web site. Thank you Mr Larry Roberts.
