Welcome to the Central Alabama Soaring Association!

Central Alabama Soaring Association (CASA) is located in central Alabama.  Our base of operations and hanger where we store our inventory of aircraft are located at Lee Merkel Field (SCD) in Sylacauga, Alabama about 40 miles southeast of Birmingham, Alabama.  The members of CASA have a long soaring history in the Birmingham area.  Our club, and it’s 30+ members, was formed as a result of the merger of the Birmingham Soaring Society and the Sylacauga Soaring Society.  Both of these clubs have a history of soaring dating back to 1969.

CASA offers those interested in soaring the opportunity to go for a glider ride and to become a member of our club.  Browse our menus and links to find information that will expand your knowledge of soaring, our club and the opportunity to experience flight in one of our tandem sailplanes.
