an inviting environment that cultivates inclusion and support for all its young members
When we first found out that Hood River soaring was going to take shape we were so excited. Our son, who was a young teenager at the time, had a fierce drive to become a pilot. When he became a member everyone took him “under their wing”, and he had an array of opportunities handed to him. Hood River Soaring makes training and becoming a glider pilot accessible through its work-study program and provides an inviting environment that cultivates inclusion and support for all its young members. We personally have incredible gratitude for all the hard work its board and club members put into making it such a success.
