Oklahoma Slope Flying Sites
One point of this page is to prove that there are flyable slopes in Oklahoma. There is a common misconception that Oklahoma is a flat as Texas. This is not true, unless you go really far west. The NE part of Oklahoma is hilly and tree covered. A couple of weeks ago I took a trip in search of the best, flyable slope in Oklahoma. One adavantage of slope flying in Oklahoma are the strong constant winds. We, of course, owe this to Kansas and Texas 😉
Several Dam sites have been found. The Topo maps are avaliable at:
Fort Cobb State Park Dam – Middle of Oklahoma
Kaw Lake Dam – Near Ponca City – N Central Oklahoma
Kristopher firstname.lastname@example.org I have bee flying for about 10 years now. This is about 1/2 as long as I have been alive. I currently fly with TULSOAR in Tulsa Oklahoma.

I’m new to slope flying, but have several planes going and have attended the MWSC in Kansas to gain some experience and knowledge. I’ll be submitting TopoZone.com coordinates on all slope sites I find in the SouthWest corner of Oklahoma.

I was an avid sloper in Colorado five years ago ( http://www.super77th.com ) and I’m moving to Oklahoma City this July from Texas. Contact me if you are interested in flying the slopes in Oklahoma. I’d be interested in carpooling (I have a Bronco to haul planes) and any info you may have on flyable slopes near OKC.
There are 2 nice sites with in 1-1.5 hours from OKC. They face different directions so you can almost fly any day from one or the other….Mark
