Please make yourself known, and don't hesitate to ask any questions - we're a friendly bunch! Regular visitors are urged to join the ISA.

Note however that flying is not permitted from Steps Hill - the area is reserved by the National Trust to encourage wild flora and fauna including birds and butterflies, and was in the past used as a firing range (there is a sign warning walkers not to wander from the paths due to the potential danger from live munitions).


If you have any questions regarding the use of Ivinghoe Beacon for slope flying, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the committee.
