Substantial work has been done to develop Air Sailing as an oasis in the desert. Over 50 shade trees are flourishing due to regular watering from a recently-installed automated drip system.
In 2002 Air Sailing opened the doors of the clubhouse. This spacious building serves as a cool and comfortable respite from the hot sun as well as a classroom for all of Air Sailing's educational events. It features a food prep area (shared fridge, microwave, sink etc.) and pilot briefing room as well as bathrooms and showers. Hot and cold running water and electricity make the clubhouse seem just like home.
In addition to the shower facilities in the clubhouse, there is a newer bathhouse with showers, flush toilets and bathroom sinks with mirrors. There's even a washer and dryer!
A covered gazebo near the family area has picnic tables and a communal barbecue. A second gazebo nestles under the trees near the flight line so non-flyers can enjoy picnics and watch the gliders in comfort.
Air Sailing is "off the grid" and electricity is generated by solar panels and stored in a substantial battery array. A diesel generator serves as a backup system. Power is supplied to the hangar, clubhouse, and bathouse. We urge you to conserve electricity, especially during the "quiet time" between 10pm and 9am when the sun doesn't shine and the generator does not run.
WiFi is readily available (provided at no charge) onsite and there is cell phone coverage with all the major carriers.
