The Caesar Creek Soaring Club (CCSC) is one of the largest and oldest soaring clubs in the United States and is located in Southwest Ohio between the cities of Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus,Ohio.[1]

History[edit]

The purpose of CCSC is to encourage the sport and art of soaring, to host the yearly Region Six South Sailplane contest and other national soaring contests run under the auspices of the Soaring Society of America. The CCSC also exists to encourage people of all ages to learn to soar. The members of the CCSC volunteer their time one day a month as instructors, tow pilots and ground handlers to provide crews on weekends and Wednesdays all year round.[1]

With over 220 members belonging to the CCSC, it is one of the two largest clubs in the United States, the other being the Texas Soaring Association located in Midlothian, Texas.[2]
