Welcome to the ISA

The Ivinghoe Soaring Association (ISA) is one of the largest R/C glider groups in the UK, with approximately 140 members. Our activities include slope soaring at Ivinghoe Beacon, and flat field soaring at a private field.

Ivinghoe Beacon is set in beautiful surroundings, approximately 40 miles north-west of London. The area is owned and managed by the National Trust, and is open to the general public.

The purpose of this website is to promote safe flying, to encourage visitors to join the ISA, and to provide a download area for members.

The ISA is affiliated with the British Model Flying Association.
