Mid Atlantic Soaring Association
154 Pecher Road
Fairfield, PA 17320
Airport Phone: 717-642-9907


One of the very best glider ports in the Washington, DC and Frederick, Maryland area, not far from Gettysburg Airport. Lowest cost soaring in the area.

Only issue is that it is located next to Camp David, so there is a PROHIBITED AREA within miles and when the President of the United States is at Camp David, the airport is essentially under the outer ring of the "no-fly" area and can be problematic.

Still a great place to go check out!
