Aberdeen & District Soarers was formed in 1978 by a group of aeromodelling and model gliding enthusiasts. Main types of flying include thermal and slope soaring, however the advances in technology has seen the introduction and increasing use of electric powered models by members.
The Club meet at weekends and Tuesday nights (summer only) at Hazelhead Sports Field as well as flying from slopes not too far away from the city. If you are interested in joining ADS or learning to fly pop along to any of our sessions.
Autumn Creeps In
The donning of a hat , gloves and heavier jacket is a sure sign that summer is waving goodbye. Doesn't daunt the hardy sould of ADS climbing the mountain though (or driving!)
Breakfast Fly In
A few hardy souls braved the elements to sample the rather iffy lift available on the west slope of Brimmond - the wind was not as strong as forecast.
Saturday 8th July saw the first DLG Competition at Hazlehead. It was a bright day with possibly a little more wind than competitors would have liked but a lot of fun was had by all. Click on the pic to read more about the day.
Del Wins Cup
The Club Glider Comp took place last weekend with Derek Robertson coming out on top of an enthusiastic field. Chellnging weather but a good spirited contest. Clicpic for Steve's report.
Too windy to fly these maginificent machines, but a photo opportunity nonetheless
