Soaring at Meon Shore

20th Sep 2017

Had a lovely afternoon soaring Meon Shore with my friend Chris – a 10m high cliff near Lee-on-Solent.

Cliff soaring is very different from inland flying – the air smooth, the lift is reliable, and this allows relaxed flying – although you rarely get more than 50ft above takeoff.

We flew with some birds of prey – probably kestrels – hovering in the same air, looking down for food. It’s amazing how close they let you come. Sadly I didn’t get any photos of them.

Weather Outlook

With Covid cases rising, we've decided to pause flying. Tier 4 rules allow us to fly, but we feel it's right to wait until Covid cases are not rising before we return to the skies. Stay safe!
