COSA members come from all walks of life. The membership list includes airline pilots, military pilots, former test pilots, corporate pilots, commercial pilots, private power pilots, glider only pilots, and glider pilot students. However, the largest percentage of members are people with no prior flying experience who decided they wanted to learn to fly gliders.
Gliders are an excellent way to learn to fly and several members have gone on to obtain power and instructors ratings.
