The largest hurdle to getting youth into cross-country and contest flying is access to a glider. In partnership with Youth Flight Canada Education fund, a Standard Jantar will be available at SOSA for qualified Youth to fly cross country and in competition.
To implement this program at low-cost to youth, donations are being solicited to help fund the program. In particular, the annual insurance premium will be the largest expense incurred by the program.
Donations can be made by credit card online through CanadaHelps.org at:
But they take a 3.9% administrative fee, so for the best use of your donation cheque or cash are better. Please contact Dave or one of the Directors for mailing address for sending cheques.

For All donations please specify that the donation is to be directed to the SOSA YOUTH PROGRAM so the donation flows back to SOSA.
If you would like more information about the program or making a donation, please contact Dave S.
Thank you for your support of this program to help give youth a pathway into cross-country and competitive soaring.
