Members only. No XC and take note of the height restrictions outlined below. Sensitive during grouse shooting season.
This site is open but please read the information on this page carefully.
OS grid reference: SE 134 462
NNE - NE (020 - 040)
1015’ (310m) AMSL, 165' (50m) Top to Bottom
PG – Soaring
HG - Expert
By the road or in the Cow and Calf Carpark.
Path from road.
Conditional (3 - 6).
Bottom landing slopes down to the road; beware of traffic. Rotor at top behind rocks. Rocky and bracken covered slope can give PG pilots problems on TO and landing. Bracken looks soft ... hidden rocks aren't! A very popular spot with tourists, hikers etc. so keep a good lookout when landing, especially for courting couples.
Permission to fly is only really available for the ridge to the left of the rock this being owned by Bradford Council. The farmer who owns the land to the right of the rock is not happy for us to fly there since this is being developed into a grouse breeding/shooting moor.
There are stables on the far side of the road and horse-riders often use the moor. Keep a good lookout for them and halt flying activities if they are close by.
Within the Leeds/Bradford CTZ. No limit below 100'AGL. If you think you may be able to get higher phone ATC on 01133 913282 at least 15mins prior to flight. If approved you will be cleared to not above 1,500' QNH (they will give you a pressure setting) within 1 mile (1.85km) radius. If you are in any doubt about setting QHN stay below 1,000' AMSL (set using map or GPS). Close booking afterwards. No XC.
In the Cow and Calf Hotel.
