Rotherham & District Model Flying CLUB

Rotherham and District model flying club is over 40 years old. Over the years the club has used several flying fields but has been based at its current site in Braithwell since 1994. We are a small club with a maximum of 40 members per year however, places are  available for 2018. 

We predominately fly fixed wing I.C or electric powered models. We offer full training to any new member wishing to take up flying to the British Model Flying Associations ‘A’ certificate level. All training is carried out by the clubs BMFA registered instructors. Our field is available for use every day from 10 am but most members  usually  arrive on Saturday and Sunday from 12.30pm onward . We stop IC  power flying at 5pm on Sundays but electric and silent flight is still permitted.  

If you wish to fly without supervision we require you to pass the A certificate.  If you are still learning as long as a member who has passed his A certificate supervises you then you can fly your model.  Think of this way. Would you like to drive your car on the road with people who have not passed their driving test.  

We pride ourselves on our safety record and good standing with the community.  Each year we  provide models for the Braithwell Show which is very well received.

We fly all sorts of models but the trend is towards electric now.  Check out the gallery and video pages to see some very nice models

Oh I forgot we have a good time as well
