Welcome

 

Welcome to the LMSC

(supporting pilots since 1975)

Please note: the webcams and weather stations are now located on the Webcams and weather page.

The LMSC web site is where you’ll find up to date information about our sites and activities. As well as the site guide and a huge range of other information, you can actively contribute by posting in the discussion forum – only LMSC members can post, but anyone can read it.

Only LMSC members are able to login – do so by using the link on the left.

Visiting pilots

Visiting pilots are very welcome to fly most of the Long Mynd sites. All pilots flying our sites must be British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) members (or members of an equivalent foreign organisation) as this includes insurance to cover injuries to other pilots or damage to property. Before flying, please read our sites guide and speak to a committee member, club coach or experienced local pilot about bottom landings, local conditions, airspace, etc. You can find details of our club coaches on the coaching pages. Why not join the LMSC if you fly our sites regularly?

Please note: if you are not an LMSC member, there is a £3 per day fee for flying the Long Mynd at weekends and bank holidays. You can pay the fee online by clicking here. After paying site management costs, the rest of this fee goes to the air ambulance.
