About Hanyu Soaring Club

Hanyu Soaring Club (HSC) is an incorporated non-profit organization (NPO) aiming to promote skysports and help regional development.

Our goal is not only to nurture sociality and cooperativeness through flying activities with glider and motor-glider, but to contribute to local communities by communicating with residents and participating in regional events.

About Us

HSC's main activity is flying on a glider (sailplane) and a motorglider (powerd sailplane). HSC consists of members not only who like to fly, but also who like mechanical work such as aircraft maintenance. Each member plays an active role utilizing his/her experience and skill of expertise.

HSC gives top most importance to the safety and has been keeping ZERO ACCIDENT resulting in injury or death since its foundation in 1999.
