Welcome to the LMSC

(supporting pilots since 1975)

In this site, you’ll find 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.
  • using the chat box on the left, where members can quickly post comments. Again, only LMSC members can post, but anyone can read.
  • sending up to date site condition reports via Twitter. Anyone can use this to give information on current conditions, by sending a tweet which includes the hash tag, #lmscsite – you can also use it to exchange information, e.g. to say you are going to a particular site today. You don’t need to be a member to use this.

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

Coming soon….

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.

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.


For information on local weather, go to our weather page.

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.
