Welcome to the BlackHawk Soaring Club
- High Flight
- by John Magee, Jr
- Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
- And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
- Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
- of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
- You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
- High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
- I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
- My eager craft through footless halls of air....
- Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
- I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
- Where never lark nor even eagle flew—
- And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
- The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
The Blackhawk Soaring Club is a non-profit group promoting aviation with gliders. We provide members with free glider flight training. A two place glider for members to rent, and tows to members with their own glider. Everyone is welcome and glider pilots can solo a glider at 14 years of age.
Please go to Club Contact and send us an e-mail for more info on joining the Blackhawk Soaring Club.
Guest are welcome.
