Lake Keepit Soaring Club is an active 7 day a week operation run for members.
We have a full-time weekday manager, and operations over the weekend are run by club members. Because LKSC is not a commercial operation, flying costs are very reasonable.
The focus at the club is cross country soaring and training. The club is a popular destination with visitors from Australia and overseas for a number of reasons. First, the site is a fantastic gliding site with soaring possible all-year-round. Good distances are possible in winter, and great distances are possible in summer.
Because of the 7 day a week operation, the club is a great place for all sorts of training . Learning to fly, getting basic gliding certificates, cross country training, distance and badge flying.
There's a range of accommodation on site to suit most tastes and most budgets available at the club from air-conditioned cabins with self contained kitchens to low-cost bunk-house accommodation. There are refrigerators in the club-house kitchen and a communal eating area. In summer, most of us eat under the starts in front of the club-house.
The club is a cooperative operation and members and visitors are expected to help with daily operations such as pre-flighting gliders, launching, chasing roos from the strip to clear it for late arrivals, and the occasional retrieve.
The club is situated in the Lake Keepit State Park where there's more accommodation and some activities like boating and fishing.
