The Slot

The Slot is NCSS’s exclusive flying site. The name stems from the fact that the land is controlled by the Solano Land Trust. Access is controlled by a locked gate. Members of NCSS are provided with the lock combination. Only pure gliders are allowed to be flown at The Slot. No powered planes. The Slot is located along Interstate 680 just North of the Marshview Road exit. See the map below. For directions, click the pin on the right (entrance) and the click the directions icon at the top toward the left side. NCSS operates a weather station up at the Slot.
