The sport of Gliding includes competitions at regional, national, and international levels.  International competitions are sanctioned by FAI, the governing body for all sport aviation records and competitions.

One of the responsibilities of the Soaring Society of America is to select a team to represent the United States at international gliding competitions.

Our next competition is the 32nd World Gliding Championships, which will take place in January at Adolfo Gonzales Chaves, Argentina (we call it "Chaves" for short).

Our team consists of six top-notch racing pilots whose biographies you can read on the US Team webpage.

With this blog, we will keep you informed of our team's activities as we prepare, travel, and compete at the World Championships.  We look forward to reading your comments and emails.
