We like to fly from places other than our home field at Jean. This section showcases what we are planning to do in the next 12 months.
Roach Dry Lake Auto Tows
We schedule a Spring event on the third weekend of April every year and a Fall event on the third weekend of October. We ferry our gliders 6 miles south of Jean to Roach Lake early Saturday morning and begin operations shortly thereafter. We need a dry lakebed and winds to be forecast less than 15 knots to go ahead with the event. Many will camp out on Saturday night to enjoy shared food and beverage along with a roaring bonfire. It is one of our best social and flying events. We welcome any SSA members to join us on these weekends.
12 - 18 July 2020
For many years we have taken a tow plane to Tonopah, NV, for a week of intense cross country flying. The event is only open to Club members but some folks from outside of Nevada have joined the Club just for this event.
