Aberdeen & District Soarers was formed in 1978 by a group of aeromodelling and model gliding enthusiasts. Main types of flying include thermal and slope soaring, however the advances in technology has seen the introduction and increasing use of electric powered models by members.

The Club meet at weekends and Tuesday nights (summer only) at a flat field as well as flying from slopes not too far away from the city. If you are interested in joining ADS or learning to fly pop along to any of our sessions.
