Club Facilities


The Albuquerque Soaring Club (ASC), established in 1960 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is currently headquartered at the Moriarty Municipal Airport located in Moriarty, New Mexico. Moriarty is located in the heart of the Estancia Valley, 35 miles east of Albuquerque. The club has approximately 80 active members, has two Piper Pawnee tow planes, four club gliders including a Schweizer 2-33A, a Grob 103, a Schweizer 1-26E, and a Libelle 201. Club members also own approximately 40 private ships ranging from 1-26s to a Duo-Discus.

Moriarty boasts some of the finest year round soaring conditions in the United States, including 15 knot thermals to 22,000 ft, mountain wave to 34,000 ft, and orographic lift off the Manzano, Sandia, Ortiz, and Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges. Many flights in excess of 300 miles are recorded each year.
