Our club aims to provide a friendly environment for enthusiasts and newcomers alike to take part in the controlled and safe flying of Radio Controlled Model Aircraft in West Oxfordshire. Our flying field is close to the town of Witney where we fly all types of quiet and electric models. We also hold indoor flying meetings in a local school hall during the winter months of the year.
We welcome new members and are happy to assist any newcomers to the hobby. Attempting to learn to fly on your own using a corner of an unsuitable field or public grassed area is not only potentially dangerous but will almost certainly result in your expensive model being reduced to a pile of bits! We would strongly recommend that before making any purchase of equipment or models you take the opportunity to speak to one of our members, many of whom have years of experience of building and flying model aircraft.
The club is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) which is the body delegated by the Royal Aero Club to be responsible for all aspects of model flying in Great Britain. The BMFA has around 820 clubs affiliated to it, with a combined membership from clubs and individual members of over 36,000. Membership brings many benefits, including 3rd party liability insurance of up to £25 million. We require all members to hold BMFA insurance.
Anyone wishing to learn more about the club is welcome to attend our monthly club meeting which is held between September and April on the second Wednesday of each month (starting at 8pm), at Witney Rugby Football Club on the B4022 at Hailey Road Witney, Oxfordshire OX29 9UH. Come along, meet us and introduce yourself. We can arrange for you to visit our flying field, book a trialflight and answer your questions.
