Southern Eagles Soaring
is a private club located in western Georgia at the Butler Municipal Airport. Southern Eagles is made up of members from both Alabama & Georgia.
SES has a Towplane and a fleet of club Gliders. Several members own their
own glider either alone or in partnerships. The central Georgia area has
proven to be an ideal site for inland thermal flying. SES is within a
reasonable commuting distance from metro Atlanta, Auburn Macon, & Columbus.
SES presents an economical
way to start or continue your soaring career. We are a volunteer based organization, all members are expected on contribute to make us a success. Several categories of membership
are available to meet your individual needs.
We are now flying Saturdays 10-6 & Sunday 12-6 when the weather is good
(Usually just 1 weekend day during Winter). We operate both weekend days
as often as we can get a full crew. (Contact us ahead of time to know
a specific day's plan for certain). See our Operations

Flying a glider - soaring - is fun, safe, educational, and a beautiful experience. The central Georgia area is an ideal site for inland thermal flying - just north of Cordele known as one of the best soaring location in the eastern US. Because of the convenient commuting distance from Atlanta, Auburn, Columbus, and Montgomery, our club is comprised of members from Alabama and Georgia. The Butler Municipal airport also offers other types of aviation activities. Each and every activity cooperates to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all.
