Flight Of The Day!
Date: 5/25/2016
Pilot: Bob Bell
Glider: Pilatus B4

Mild dust devils at about 9:00AM, that is the earliest I ever recall seeing
them, even in the high desert

Bob had a 1.5 hr flight to 5500, except for his students, no one else showed

Take a flight with us and experience the Joy Of Soaring!

You can also share the experience with another passenger in our Schwiezer 2-32 glider!
(prices listed below are for each passenger)

YouTube Video Our introductory orientation flights are for people of all ages who want to experience the Joy of Soaring, to fly without an engine - like a hawk. We often follow them - because they're always in the best lift! You'll be accompanied by one of our FAA Commercially Rated Pilots and you'll be able to spend your time enjoying what every glider pilot lives for!

Basic Orientation Flight: $82.00
Our tow plane will pull your glider 3,000 feet above the airport where you'll spend 20 minutes gliding around the Elsinore Valley. We may even gain 1000 feet altitude in a thermal, before returning for a safe, gentle landing. (Approximately 20-30 minutes.)

The "Cleveland Forest Magic Flight": $130.00
We'll go to 6,500 feet on the San Juan Capistrano side of the Ortega Mountains. With clear weather, we'll see Catalina and San Clemente Islands to the West. Sometimes, we'll be floating far above a magic carpet of coastal clouds. To the East, we have the 10,000 foot plus peaks of Baldy, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto. Should you want to, we'll share the flight controls and show you how to do simple maneuvers by yourself. You can even experience the thrill of feeling "light as a feather". (Approximately 40-45 minutes.)

To make a reservations, select your flight then call (951) 609-4579, or email the Scheduler at address

What's New at LESC
New LESC Phone Number

We have a new phone number:  (951) 492-2701  and it is available for immediate use. 

This new number has some much needed features: 

  • The system will email those of us that monitor the voicemail box. It will notify us when there is a message and it will also turn the message to text.  It is quite good at that but it is not prefect.  It is a great way to quickly get a sense of what the call is about.
  • The system currently goes straight to voicemail and does not ring anywhere.  We can have it ring a phone if we need to and change what that phone is on the fly. This should be useful when we have to change things when we move. 

These are the Members that will get notified:

  • Scheduler
  • Chief Instructor
  • Treasure
  • V.P. of Membership
