Slope Soaring Sites in Connecticut near Bristol

E-mail Print PDF

A nice multi-direction site that has N, NW, W and E faces about 80 feet high is located on Perkins Street in Bristol, CT.

It is an old gravel mine area that is now a rustic dog walking area owned by the town. Use the nice parking lot they created and feel free to bring a weed whacker to clear off the top of the slope. The slope requires a 1000 foot walk from the parking area.

GPS coordinates:
N 41 degreesĀ  41.595 minutes
W 72 degrees 57.938 minutes

A SW slope is on the west end of a large sloped field in Bristol. It is just east of a large factory complex on James P. Casey road. Use on weekends only. Park in pull out on the factory driveway at the bottom of the slope. Site is posted for snowmobile trespassing but
has never been a problem.

GPS Coordinates:
N 41 degreesĀ  41.617 minutes
W 72 degrees 58.677 minutes

Connecticut Slope Soaring in Bloomfield

E-mail Print PDF

A nice grass NW slope about 80 feet high is located behind the Seabury retirement home on route 185 in Bloomfield. Park in the parking lot on top of the hill. The slope is owned by the town so don't let rent-a-cops from the home say you can't be there. There is an RC field out to the right of the hill so check frequencies if anyone is there.

GPS Coordiantes:
N 41 degreesĀ  50.201 minutes
W 72 degrees 42.460 minutes

Rhode Island Slope Soaring

E-mail Print PDF

Jan sent in this info. Thanks for the first info about Rhode Island!

Here's a link to a couple of slope sites in Rhode Island - yes, RI. Provided by DrBill. Haven't flown there myself. http://www.risoaringclub.org/

Jan says "It's been a cold and rainy summer out on the Cape so far with very little chance to do any slope soaring due to closures. Looking forward to Labor Day.

Regards,
Jan
