Hanyu Soaring Club is open to membership application throughout the year. Anyone who agree with our Club Policies can submit application regardless of age*, gender and flying experience. Of course, we welcome an absolute beginner who has never seen a glider (sailplane) before.

Glider (sailplane) is categorized as an aircraft which shares the same sky with other types of aircraft including huge airliners. For safety flight, glider pilots are strongly required to have a sense of social decency, self-directivity and cooperativeness in addition to skills of flight operations.
