Welcome

 

THIS IS DL SITE!!!

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.

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.

Recent announcements
 
  • Just a reminder - copied from Dave’s post in the Forum: LMSC AGM thursday 23rd March in Bridgnorth – tonight AT 8PM! Everyone is most welcome, if only to have a chat and a drink. -There are a couple of vacant positions on the committee - it would be fantastic if these could be filled! VENUE:

    Welcome to the Crown. Come along and see us any time of day or night.

  • LMSC webcams As you have probably seen, most of our webcams are not available. The problem is the internet connection at the MGC, which means all the webcams located there are not able to upload to the internet - this includes the new time lapse webcam, which though the images are displaying, they are from Friday. The MGC is aware of this, though, in fact, the problem doesn't seem to be at the MGC itself. They are, of course, trying to get it sorted asap. On the plus side, our Sarn webcam and weather station are working as normal.

  • Webcams and weather stations I'll probably regret saying this, but all webcams and weather stations are now working, both at the Mynd and at Sarn. Apologies for the delay and thanks to the MGC for their efforts in fixing a problem which wasn't their fault! We are shortly releasing two more - one looking at the Mynd from the west, and another time lapse on the Mynd, looking east.

  • Tenerife

  • Evening Guys. Just regarding the weather station on Sarn. You can also access it via an app from Android, im not sure about iOS. Its called Holfuy live. Its live so you have to most upto date info direct to your phone. Edit... Its free also :)
