achieving one’s goals is easily attainable
I knew I wanted to fly when I was 13 years old. At the time, I had no idea how I could make my dream of flying a reality. I first got involved with Hood River Soaring through a free ground school class offered at WAAAM. Many of the club members and instructors attended, and everyone was very friendly and encouraging towards me. Thanks to HRS and the youth program, I was able to fund my private glider pilot training entirely from a combination of work study funds and an SSA scholarship. This is what differentiates HRS from many other glider clubs, the club members and the club itself are structured in a way to make success the path of least resistance, therefore achieving one’s goals is easily attainable. I am grateful to HRS for all of the support and for all of the opportunities that they offered me.
