This FIRC is aimed at glider instructors but everybody is encouraged to attend. You do not have to be a member nor a glider pilot. Those interested in obtaining their glider instructor rating will be well served by attending this clinic. 

The main goals of a FIRC include:

  • Increasing pilot awareness of soaring safety issues 
  • Disseminating training information and material
The FIRC is presented by the Soaring Safety Foundation, SSF.
