Mach Loop

we are ideally situated should you wish to visit the Mach Loop a set of valleys, situated between Dolgellau in the north, and Machynlleth in the south (and from which the Mach Loop gets its name), which are regularly used for low level flight training, with flying as low as 250 feet (76 metres) from the nearest terrain.

To the south of the Mach Loop there is an area called Tactical Training Area 7T, in which, at specified times, the aircraft may fly as low as 100 feet (30.5 Metres). The Royal Air Force publish a timetable of when the Tactical Training Areas may be in use, however experience shows this to be of little use in determining whether low level flying will take place on a particular day or time.

Low flying is an vital skill for military aircrew, and the Royal Air Force uses various areas of the United Kingdom for low level flight training.

viewpoints such as Cad East, Cad West, & Corris Corner are all viewpoint which get you closer and almost on eye level with the fast flying jets & pilots as they carry out there training, making them ideal places for photographers, this is becoming and ever increasing & popular pastime for many visitors to the area.
