Take to the Skies

Instruction & Training

Come Fly With Us

People fly CSS sites seven days a week, weather permitting, so it is easy to get site information and a ride up the hill. There are a few flight schools which operate nearly every day and they are good sources of information for visiting pilots, obtaining visiting memberships, and site sign-offs.

Training Hill Flight

Local Instructors

All instructors listed are USHPA certified and are qualified to issue USHPA ratings, which are required to fly at Crestline/Marshall and most flying sites in the USA. Only instructors/schools that also have the additional PASA certification can use Andy Jackson Airpark as a training facility. Instructors are not affiliated with the Crestline Soaring Society and are independent operators.
