Herefordshire Model Aero Club was formed in 1968 to provide facilities and support to enthusiasts of aero modelling – both building and flying. Over the years the Club has come to concentrate on radio-controlled fixed wing model aircraft powered by internal combustion engines or, increasingly, by electric motors.
The Club’s flying site is located in the village of Much Marcle, HR8 2LX, and is a field of some 30 acres with a Clubhouse on site. The site is not normally suitable for free flight, rotary wing or jet turbines due to limitations of boundaries and noise control.
The Club is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) which is the national body for the sport. All club members must be members of the BMFA. We strictly observe noise level limits as per the BMFA/DoE codes. There are limits on the hours of operation of I/c powered models.
We welcome new members, especially younger people, and we can offer training to the BMFA “A” standard which allows members to then fly solo. We have our own trainer model with dual control radio to get newcomers through the first stages before they go on to train on their own model.
We hold social and themed flying events from time to time.
Club membership is subject to approval by the committee and includes a probationary period. If you are interested in joining and wish to find out more please contact the Secretary, Bernard Morris, on 07720 677056
