Fixed Wing models

We offer Tuesday training evenings sessions from April to September. Instruction is available on other days throughout the year by arrangement with an instructor.

We have a 100% record in recent years for getting people through the BMFA A-test at first attempt. We usually cater for complete novices, pilots preparing to take the A-test or experienced fliers who have perhaps had a break from the sport or who just want to brush up on safety matters. At the moment, we have a limited number of instructors and so we are accepting very few new novices.

If you'd like more information about flight training and the BMFA A-test, have a look at the links below:

You can also test your knowledge of safety matters by following this link.

We offer a taster session to anyone thinking of taking up model flying using our club trainer. We can also then offer advice on a suitable trainer model and radio set-up.

Helicopters

We do not offer formal training for helicopter flying.

Informal help may be available from other members at the flying field if you have a basic level of proficiency. To find out more, come to the next club night and talk to one of our committee members who look after helicopter flying. Details of our next club night can be found here.
