About A470 Soaring

This is the blog for a few guys who spend their time flying radio controlled gliders, or slope soarer's, from the many and varied slopes around SE Wales.

This usually begins at the northern end of Cardiff, driving north up the A470 up to the Heads of the Valley's and the southern fringe of the Brecon Beacons. But the A470 road continues its windy way all the way to N Wales.

There are many slopes available for most wind directions, the most famous being the area between Nant-y-Moel and Treorchi known as The Bwlch, which has some of the best slopes and flying in Europe with many F3F competitions being held there each year and visited by many fliers from Europe and around the world. At 1500 feet (450m) above sea level, there is usually more wind than not, and certainly more than at sea level.

If you require any further information, are new to slope soaring or are visiting the area, please contact Steve at steve.houghton59@gmail.com . I look forward to hearing from you.

Bwlchfest Update 28th February

Hi all

Robin has been busy designing and doing some procurement research so that we can have the opportunity to purchase T shirts and caps for Bwlchfest, and this is what he has come up with.

Caps will be approximately £5.00 each

This is the front of the T Shirt

And this is the back of the T shirt

T shirt cost will be approximately £20.00, however, the more we order from the supplier, the cheaper they become.

If you wish to pre order a shirt or cap, please contact me, either by leaving a comment on this post, or emailing me at steve.houghton59@gmail.com, letting me know what size of shirt you require, so that I can let Robin know the numbers required. 

Payment will be by PayPal once we know the numbers required and an accurate cost given, and we will then let you know.

There may be some non personalised shirts and caps available on the day but sizes and quantities cannot be guaranteed.
