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.

Local Sites:

  • 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.
  • Laguna Lake - A low ridge soaring site.
  • Shell Beach - A Low Ridge Site considered hazardous - requires a local checkout.

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.
