Soaring Photo Calendars

Overview
I just love photographs of sailplanes.  As an amateur photographer with several images published in the Soaring Society of America Soaring Calendar in the past, and images used in Soaring magazine and sailplane ads, I really appreciate good soaring photographs.  You can see some of my soaring photographs here: Paul's Soaring Photos.  Sailplanes are extremely elegant machines.  Their long slender wings and smooth lines are graceful and beautiful to behold.  My passion for soaring photos has led me to offer several of the world's best soaring photo calendars for your pleasure. 

Use These Calendars to Promote Soaring
Not only can you appreciate the photos on the walls of your home or office, but they also can be a great way to promote soaring.  When displayed in a public place such as your office, you are likely to get questions about soaring - which is great.  In fact, the display of the SSA Soaring Calendars at my first place of employment is what got me to start flying sailplanes at age 22.  Afterwards I found out that a wonderful soaring promoter here in Minnesota named Harry Meline used the SSA Soaring Calendars to promote both soaring and his small company.  Every year he brought in batches of the calendars with his company information displayed on a simple mailing label on the front cover of the calendar.  He laid them out for anyone to take.  Many employees at that company had the lovely soaring calendars on the walls of their offices and cubicles.  I had always wanted to try soaring - someday.  But finally one day I decided that the time was right, so I flipped the calendar on my wall over and found the phone number for the Soaring Society of America.  I called them and they told me about the local soaring clubs and commercial operations.  Harry Meline is no longer soaring in this world, but perhaps others will follow his example and use soaring calendars to promote soaring in their workplaces.  ...Years later I distributed soaring calendars to my customers in the industrial automation industry.  They all displayed them on their office walls and asked many questions about soaring.

Calendar Images as Framed Art
These soaring photo calendars contain high-quality photos which are suitable for framing. The photo below shows 3 images from the fotokalender-segelfliegen framed and mounted on Mitch Polinsky's office wall at Stanford. What a great way to add color to your office while promoting soaring.

Calendar Comparison
The images below are to scale - showing the relative size of each available calendar.  As you can see, the fotokalender-segelfliegen is the largest (it's huge!), the Segelflug-Bildkalendar is medium sized, and the SSA calendar is the smallest.  All 3 calendars offer exceptional soaring photos.  The Segelflug-Bildkalendar offers the most interesting articles on the backs of the photos.  The SSA calendar offers a large calendar grid which can be used to enter upcoming events, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. I recommend that you select the one with the images you like the best.

fotokalender-segelfliegen (Photo Calendar - Sailplanes), 2017
(formerly called the Claus-Dieter Zink Soaring Photo Calendar)
Photos by Claus-Dieter Zink, and Tobias Barth

Wow!  This calendar is huge!  I think it can be accurately described as a collection of 13 very sharp and vivid soaring posters.  The photos by Claus-Dieter Zink and Tobias Barth are fantastic! The very large format is also very nice. The images are nearly twice as wide as the SSA Soaring Calendar.  At right is a photo of my 9 year old daughter holding the 2010 calendar to help you get an idea of just how large it is.

Article from Gliding International magazine, September-October 2016

The last page includes information about all the photos in English and German.

Note: This calendar includes a very basic calendar.  It does not have a large grid of days that can be used to write appointments or notes.  The SSA Soaring Calendar is more suited to use writing notes on specific dates.  But this calendar's very large photos look great on the wall of your office or soaring club clubhouse.

Makes a great gift!

Now in its 48th year of publication, the Soaring Calendar has always presented an impressive combination of history, everyday operations and modern technology. This issue tells in English and German of the early days of: gliding in Rositten (now Russia); flying in the snow; cross-country over the Alps from Kärnten; the Mistral wave in the South of France; record Alpine flights; the very latest technology embedded in the Ventus 3, Antares, and ASG 32. All are stories calculated to ring your soaring bell. The format is unchanged at 48 x 29 cm (18.9 x 11.4 inches) with the removable tear-off montly calendar strip; absolutely unique.

This calendar offers extremely well written and interesting information on the back of each photo.  It makes this calendar really stand out from all others. 

Note: This calendar includes a very basic calendar.  It does not have a large grid of days that can be used to write appointments or notes.  The SSA Soaring Calendar is more suited to use writing notes on specific dates.  But this calendar's large photos look great on the wall of your office or soaring club clubhouse.
