Founded in 1959, the Minnesota Soaring Club (MSC) is governed by an
elected Board of Directors and a set of By-laws and is a Chapter of the Soaring Society of America.
The Board consists of six members. A President,
Vice-president, Secretary and Treasurer elected annually
at the fall membership picnic. The Board then appoints the
Operations Director and Equipment Director. The
appointed Directors are responsible for scheduling daily
training, flight operations and equipment maintenance. See the current Leadership Team here.
Members join by purchasing a share of the club's assets.
Shares can be purchased in 1/3, 2/3 or full portions. Voting
privileges are governed by the amount of ownership.
Annual dues are assessed from each member with the
fractional share owner paying a higher rate.
Members are expected to be available for scheduled field
duty such as moving the equipment to and from the
runways, performing daily inspections, scheduling
flights, towing and instructing when qualified.
Flight time and tows are charged at rates well below
commercial alternatives and there is no charge for instruction.
