The Silent Knights Soaring Society (SKSS) is an AMA sanctioned club, dedicated to silent flight. Sailplanes or electric craft may be flown at the “Big Pond” site in the White Clay Creek State Park, just north of Newark, Delaware. Access to the flying site is by way of a lockable gate. The club owns winches and retrievers that are available for use at the field. Training planes and instruction are available, along with as much advice as the novice can absorb.
