Chas Andrew and Gordon Veal founded SSGA in January 2000. The objectives of the association are to promote scale gliding and all aspects of silent flight. Our thirteen and a half acre site is located in open countryside approximately 2 miles east of Bishop Norton, Lincolnshire.
We specialise in aerotowing scale gliders. We also launch by winch and bungee. Electric flight is now popular for gliders and scale models. I/C powered models are only allowed for glider tugs and motor gliders.
We hold a number of open fly-ins throughout the year for both aerotowing and electric flight, details of which can be found on the events page.
The Association is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association and members are encouraged to participate in the BMFA achievement scheme. The Association has BMFA registered examiners and instructors.
We welcome visitors at all times.
