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.
Club members fly regularly at various local flat field sites and slopes whenever the weather is suitable. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome. We also hold a number of friendly fly-ins and competitions throughout the summer months and indoor flying meetings at Bridge of Don during the winter months. If you are interested in joining ADS or learning to fly, please contact the club secretary via the email address on the Club Info page.
Easing of lockdown restrictions meant that, as the wind was favourable, a trip to the Cairn O'Mount, the iconic soaring site for the north east anyway, was on the cards. A good turnout too!!
Limited time for flying this year but a few hardy lads took a trek up Brimmond on New Years Day.
The good thing about the winter weather is that the cold days offer some great flying conditions. As long as you the constitution of a penguin!
