The Grand Teton Soaring Club (GTSC) was formed in the spring of 2003 as a non-profit organization to promote soaring, advance the knowledge of the sport,  and to provide its members with soaring oportunities at minimum cost.  GTSC is governed by a board of directors elected from the membership.  Application for membership in GTSC can be made at any time. 
GTSC is a member of the Soaring Society of America (SSA).

GTSC is based in Driggs, Idaho, which lies between the Teton and Big Hole mountain ranges. Currently, club members buy tows from the local FBO (Teton Aviation, 208-354-3100).  

The club fleet consists of a Standard Cirrus (N190TS) which we purchased in July 2009.

GTSC does not offer instruction, tows, or scenic rides.

instruction, tows, or scenic rides call Teton Aviation (208-354-3100)
