Our Flying site

Our flying site is secluded and situated on a farm and comprises a generous grass runway with an adjacent pits area. We also have use of a caravan and picnic furniture which are next to the pits, and which provides welcome shelter during inclement weather.

The site can be used for flying 365 days a year, throughout daylight hours. In practical terms however, since access is by way of unmade road and tracks, winter flying is sometimes restricted by the state of the access routes. The runway, which measures 14 metres by 70 metres is situated on an east-west aspect and is suitable for most wind directions.

With a small membership, there is rarely any ‘wait’ time to get in the air!

Most of our members fly fix-wing models, whether powered by electric motor or glow engine, although we do also have members who fly rotary, both helicopters and multi-rotor. No training is available for rotary flying at present.

During the summer months, we often have impromptu bbq’sĀ  at the flying site.

Safety

Radio Controlled flying is not without risks and safety has been a watchword for the club since its inception. We adhere to BMFA safety guidelines whereby the club and individual members enjoy a comprehensive insurance coverĀ  The club operates several additional local safety procedures designed to protect both flyers and the general community.
