    Artificial Slope

    Hi Munch 197 Sounds good to me Do you have a postcode for Burrough Hill? or directions even an idiot (me) could understand and use to get there? - preferably from the NC if poss...... Don't tell anyone, but I think this site would be a much better bet than a mobile canvas one, or even a tip My thinking is that the lads who fly ELG could do their thing on the flat, while the dedicated slopers could do theirs here!

    Artificial Slope

    Flies best south west. But north west is more than flyable just one tree top close to the edge. Operated by Leicestershire council I believe but free to fliers even with electric motors. A short walk from the £2.50 a day carpark. It's far from the best slope you'll fly at and can be turbulent owing to the foliage on the slope. But we have had some very good days up there with high end moulded gliders. And landing area is a plenty just watch for the rotor over the slope lip. Worth a go if you're in the area in my opinion.

    UK F3K Eurotour & World Cup 2019

    Hi Gianmaria! Of course we remember you, and would be delighted to see you at our F3K Eurotour event again. I'm sure we can arrange a pick-up from Stansted on the Friday, I have a fishing bivi, bed chair, sleeping bag and cooking stove that you can use for camping (the bedchair is wonderful to sleep in, you will be the most comfortable person at the field ) I wonder if the confusion of Brexit has put off our Dutch and Belgian friends from registering yet, I really hope that when/if we know what the hell is going to happen over the next few months some will make the trip over to us. To run a competition I believe we need a minimum of 10 pilots, I hope that there are other UK pilots ready to enter soon. Just 7 weeks to go! Tony Bivi - something like this
  7. Tony B said: "Lengthy period of strong winds seems over, so out for a session this morning from 9:15. Comfortable temperature with sunshine, although field rather soggy. Managed an 8:32 before the wind increased too much. For the 3rd 14 Day Challenge:- Tony B - Chili - 19th March 8:32"

    Artificial Slope

    Hi Munch 197 Best wind direction(s)? good landing area? NT land? Private owner? anyone actually flown there? Marks out of ten?......... Several ISA members are going to the National Centre for an Awayday in April.......they'll be taking ELG planes, but could take one or two slope soarers to make an assessment with, if its worth it......... Regards Pete BARCS 1702

    It's the only decent slope in the area. Next closest is the peaks I think. A view from the top

    Artificial Slope

    Hi all Quote - "We do have a natural slope fairly close to the Centre so there is an opportunity for those who are in the area and wish to slope soar.” unquote Anyone know where this existing slope is? I'm surprised that, if there is a usable slope "fairly close" to the centre, Manny didn't just say "Oh but there IS a slope available already..........or am I just being difficult - again? Breaking News!!!!!!! Munch197 is ahead of me, and my slow typing, on this, so IS it Borough Hill?.......... Regards Pete BARCS1702

    Burrough hill I assume by this? As its only 12 miles down the road. For anyone interested it's NW or SW and good amount of rotor on landing.

    That’s not slope soaring, though. Neither is this. Way off thread both of you! In other news, I’ve heard from Manny Williamson ( BMFA), who says: “The artificial slope looks like an interesting idea but I am not sure it would be a viable at the National Centre due to cost and utilisation, however, we are always open to ideas, particularly where there is a good case and supporting evidence/groundwork. We do have a natural slope fairly close to the Centre so there is an opportunity for those who are in the area and wish to slope soar.” I take this as an invitation to make a proper case if we think it is worth proceeding.
