About Us

CSA is an close-knit collection of soaring enthusiasts whose arms are always open to new members and to those who may just be curious about what soaring is all about. 

The Coastal Soaring Association (CSA) is a volunteer, 501(c7) non-profit organization that's dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of the sport of soaring. CSA is an affiliate club of the Soaring Society of America (SSA) and everyone operating CSA equipment is required to have a current SSA membership. Some of our pilots are novice students who've just started in aviation. Some are expert pilots with decades of aviation experience behind them. We currently number around 40 members.

Find us at Elsanor Airport, AL: - 30 minutes away from downtown Pensacola and 15 minutes off of I-10 Exit 5 at 21756A Koier Rd, Robertsdale, AL 36567

If you're interested in learning what flying gliders is all about -- or know someone who is -- this is a great opportunity to experience the thrill of soaring like an eagle. CSA offers introductory flights that will take you through preflight, launch behind a tow plane, 20 to 30 minutes of flying, and, of course, a safe and exciting approach and landing. The price is $95 and gift certificates are available. 

Better yet, see us in person!

We operate most weekends when the weather cooperates. We also operate weekdays on request.
