The LMSC is a very long established hang gliding and paragliding club, and boasts one of the best westerly sites in the country, as well as a number of other sites taking most wind directions. Joining the club only costs £20.00 a year, and brings you various benefits. If you fly our sites regularly, do consider joining the club!
The Long Mynd site
The Long Mynd take off field is owned by the club. It is located just east of the border between England and mid-Wales, and is one of the best hang gliding and paragliding sites in the UK. There is a site fee of £3.00 per day to non-members flying at weekends and bank holidays.
The club manages a number of other sites in Shropshire and East Wales on behalf of members, taking a variety of wind directions. Several sites are members only. Visiting pilots need to contact the chairman, secretary, membership secretary, or coaches to check on flying access during the year.
There are a number of coaches within the club, who will help any pilots seeking advice on the hill. Coaching events and exam sessions are arranged occasionally or are available on request.
