We had to share this excellent video, courtesy of the  Texas Soaring Association – a great advert for gliding! 

The blurb for the video says:

The Texas Soaring Association (TSA) is a not-for-profit corporation devoted to motorless flight. Established in 1947, the club is located 15 minutes south of Midlothian, Texas, which is itself at the southern edge of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The club is maintained and operated by the voluntary efforts of its more than 200 members. The club operates from its own airfield and owns six single and four two-place sailplanes, plus four Pawnee towplanes. TSA operates year round on most flyable Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The club also operates on an unscheduled basis on other weekdays when the flying weather is really good!

This video was made with the interest of gliding in mind. This video was made by a small group of TSA youth members.

100% filmed on the GoPro hero 3 Black edition.
