Description

Come soar with us over the beautiful and historic Shenandoah Valley. Skyline Soaring Club at the Front Royal - Warren County Airport (FRR) near Front Royal, Virginia. Located about 50 miles west of Dulles International Airport and about 70 miles west of downtown Washington, DC, we are situated conveniently to residents and visitors to the nation's capital.

Front Royal marks the northern end of the famous Skyline Drive, a splendid scenic route that runs south down the spine of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Several of the Shenandoah Valley's famous limestone caverns are nearby, including Skyline Caverns just a few miles south of the airport. There are many other tourist attractions in the area, including dozens of Civil War battlefields - the town of Winchester, 17 miles north, changed hands more than a dozen times!

Located between the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the northern tip of the Massanutten Ridge on the west, we have excellent soaring conditions - thermal, ridge, and wave; it's not unusual for a soaring pilot to experience all three in a single flight!
