South Cotswold Soaring Association

 
 
We are extremely lucky in that we have 6 main flying sites, all of which are beauty spots and most are SSSI, 5 plus North Nibley are on the Cotswold Way, all within a 20 minutes drive of each other. Also, all of the sites have easy access, with car parks within a couple of hundred yards of the actual flying area.
We have no slope for NE winds and sometimes go to Leckhampton near Cheltenham
The sites are mostly on National Trust land who welcome non powered models
