Wave Camp 2019, February 26 - March 7
During previous camps we've had as many as 6 wave days, with conditions often persisting through-out the entire day. Pilots were able to fly in wave above the surrounding mountains; Mt.MitchellRoan Highlands & Linville Gorge... This area offers some of the most spectacular and demanding soaring in the East.

Arrival Update: 
Avoid damage to airport surfaces

The ground at Shiflet will be wet and the airport has very little pavement. Please drive only on the gravel road along the West side of the field. Park your trailer and vehicles only within the Trailer Parking area... Be aware, this is a private airport, there are no suitable reasons to damage airport grounds with your visiting vehicles.
