Whilst not the most common wind direction this is probably the best slope we fly at when the wind is right. Good clean air, abundant lift and no obstacles. A large landing area allows even the largest of scale gliders to be operated easily. This is another site that is very popular with hang-glider/paragliders.
The slope faces East. With a North East bowl at the Southern end of the slope (out of bounds if hang/paragliders are present).
The site is available for use by the MVSA and the Sky Surfing Club.
Note:- CADMAC have an open invitation to fly under MVSA rules.
This is a private site and a £1 fee / person is payable on every visit by anyone using the site. An honesty box is located by the hedge just inside the gate. (Blue Pillar)
A maximum of 13 models are allowed in the air at any one time.
Only model gliders and electrically “power assisted gliders” (ie. are able to stay aloft without a motor, in all but sinking conditions) are allowed.
All other powered models or gliders powered by other means are forbidden.
A white triangle marker is located on a fence post approximately half way across the slope. Modellers shall fly to the North of this marker and hang glider/para gliders to the South.
Do not climb over the fence, there are stiles at either end of the field should you need to go down the slope.
