MERCURY SLOPE

Mercury

Whilst not the most common wind direction this is probably the best slope we fly at when the wind is right. Good clean air, abundant lift and no obstacles. A large landing area allows even the largest of scale gliders to be operated easily. This is another site that is very popular with hang-glider/paragliders.

 

Slopes
The slope faces East.  With a North East bowl at the Southern end of the slope (out of bounds if hang-gliders/paragliders are present).

 

 

SITE RULES
The site is available for use by the MVSA and the Sky Surfing Club.

This is a private site and a £1 fee is payable on every visit by anyone using the site. An honour box is located by the hedge just inside the gate.

A maximum of 13 models are allowed in the air at any one time.

An orange/yellow marker is located on a fence post approximately half way across the slope. Modellers shall fly to the North of this marker and hang glider/para gliders to the South.
