InterMountain Silent Flyers

Soar Utah ’98

Dear Soaring Enthusiast:

InterMountain Silent Flyers (IMSF) invites you to participate in the 3rd annual Soar Utah on September 5-7 at the Point of the Mountain slope soaring site, located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The unique combination of a premier flying sites and its close proximity to a major metropolitan area, offers you the opportunity for great flying with all the conveniences of home. Pilots are encouraged to bring a variety of aircraft as there will be time slots for vintage scale, modern scale, power slope scale (PSS), and fun flying.

The primary site for Soar Utah is the Point of the Mountain, one of the best soaring sites in North America. The south side of the Point rises about 400 feet from the valley floor and levels off to a wide, flat plain on top. The north side is quite different, as it consists of two distinct ridges. The first ridge levels off at 300 feet with a bench that is several hundred feet wide, then rises an additional 800 feet to the "rear" hill.

The highlight of the event is the opportunity to fly at Francis Peak. At an elevation near 10,000 feet, Francis Peak rises more than a mile above the valley floor, offering an unforgettable soaring experience and breath-taking views of the Great Salt Lake and the Salt Lake Valley.

The emphasis of Soar Utah is on flying and having fun. Our banquet will be held on Saturday evening. We will also have a static display with pilots’ choice awards and one of the best raffles in the West. The previous raffle included nearly $5,000 in soaring merchandise!

Pre-registration for Soar Utah is encouraged. Soar Utah is an AMA event and proof of current AMA membership will be required.
