SLOSA Site Guide
San Luis Soaring Assn. (SLOSA) Members fly sites that are very sensitive and we ask
that all pilots remain in compliance with the guidelines indicated in the Site Guides.
Some sites are only available to us because of extensive negotiation with governmental agencies and private
landowners. We have entered into agreements that place accountability on SLOSA so membership is
REQUIRED FOR THOSE SITES.
When a site indicates that specific paperwork needs to be filed, that form will be available for print-out.
We do not require SLOSA membership to fly many of our sites, but SOME do have that requirement as a condition
of our use permit or insurance requirements. If you are new to the area and are asked whether you have
met the pre-requisites to flying a particular site, by a SLOSA member, please understand that we are only
protecting our sites so they will be available in the future.
- Cayucos - A Hike-up/Drive-up Coastal Soaring
Site with spectacular panorama.
- Cuesta Grade - A Drive-up Mountain Thermal
Site with some XC potential.
- Montana de Oro (MDO) - A Coastal Soaring
Site in a State Park, offering a long ridge.

Site Checkouts and Monitors
Some of our sites require a SLOSA Check-out. Some also require a P2, or P3 rating unless
"Supervised by an instructor." To help you negotiate your way through the system, here is a list of Instructors and
Site Monitors that can answer your questions.
