CSA Blanik L-23 and Grob G103Colorado Soaring Association members are very fortunate to have several excellent sailplanes, a towplane and other airport equipment at their disposal. The web pages describe CSA's aircraft and equipment in detail. Links to manuals and other documentation are available. In some cases sailplanes have specific user guides and/or pilot notes which provide specific information which flight instructors and crew chiefs require pilots to know, observe and follow when using the aircraft or equipment.

General Aircraft and Equipment Care

While Crew Chiefs are generally assigned to each aircraft or piece of equipment, they are only responsible to arrange for on-going maintenance, annual inspections, and the larger issues concerning their charge. ALL CSA MEMBERS are responsible for the general, daily care of the aircraft and equipment they use. Following are some specific items each member should take care of when using CSA aircraft and equipment:
