At the outbreak of World War II, Elmira was the first site chosen to develop a glider program and train pilots for the war effort. Motorless flight is honored in the "Soaring Capital of the World" at the National Soaring Museum. Visitors can view the world`s largest collection of sailplanes and gliders, as well as hands-on exhibits, films and archive holdings dating to the late 1800s.
