Only LMSC members are able to login – do so by using the link on the left.
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.
Many LMSC pilots also fly Long Mountain. This is not an LMSC site, but it is within our area. There is a £5 site fee for flying here. Pay this online here.

Want to learn to fly?
We are a club of qualified pilots and do not train people wanting to learn to fly. However, there are local schools who will be happy to teach you to fly, or give you tandem lessons. Please see our Schools page for more details.

Long Mynd webcam
This webcam appears courtesy of the Midland Gliding Club. Updates every 15 minutes. The time displayed is GMT. The webcam now gives additional information from a weather station located at the MGC – you can see its location on the webcam, and the information should be accurate – though it will read less than the winds we get due to the compression on our launch, of course. Note that it’s in knots, not mph.
