    Event Description:
                         New Soaring Flight Center Opens

    The Harris Hill Soaring Corporation (HHSC) will celebrate the completion of its beautiful new Flight Center at a Grand Opening on Tuesday, August 20 at 2:00 p.m. The event is open to the public.

    The all-new building, adjacent to the landmark 1930s Glider Hangar on
    Harris Hill, will be a welcoming venue for the thousands of visitors who come to the “Soaring Capital of America” annually, many of whom purchase glider rides. It will also host HHSC members’ meetings and social events.

    HHSC launched a Building Fund Campaign in 2016, and has raised over $300,000 to date, 60% from member donations. $50,000 is from Empire State Development, and the balance consists of grants from several area foundations and gifts from community-minded individuals.

    In addition to their generous financial donations, many HHSC members volunteered to raze the old Flight Center and to build the new one.
    Virtually all of the interior and exterior carpentry was done by HHSC members.
