Welcome to the Home Page of the Wessex Model Flying Club. For 48 years the Club was known as Warminster & District Radio Control Flying Club and some of the founding members remain members to this day. The name changed in 2017 to better reflect the wider area covered by our membership and our multi-site flying locations.

The Club is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) and all members carry full insurance. BMFA protects the interests of model flyers throughout the UK and lays down safety procedures and practices to which the Club strictly adheres.

The club encourages most sections of the hobby and whilst fixed wing flying is the largest interest there is an active helicopter group. Although we have some members whose interests lie with large and exotic scale models, most members are content to buy ready-built models from the local hobby shops or construct from a plan.

New members are welcome whether or not they posses model flying experience and we have training models available so that flying can be taught, hands on, within minutes of reaching the airfield with no previous knowledge. Several dedicated instructors will help to develop the necessary skills to enable flyers to safely control a model aircraft through all the different phases of a flight. Not only is this the safest path to the hobby but also the least costly.

We are a friendly club and our members all share a common interest in model aviation. If you would like to become involved with like-minded people, visit our Contacts page and get in touch. We will arrange to meet up and introduce you to the delights of model flying.

Good evening all - a couple of things tonight......There will be a **Train & Test day & BBQ on Sunday 26th June** to be held at our Poulshot site. Steve Kirby (Area Chief Examiner) will be coming to take Bob Dawson through his Examiner award. He will be bringing other examiners with him. For this to be a real success, we need to know who will be attending, if for no other reason than to buy in the right amount of food for the BBQ.Phil Temple has offered to help with the cooking on the day and we need a few volunteers to help erect the marquee at around 9.00 - 9.30am.This really is a 'golden opportunity' if you don't have an 'A' certificate to either take the test on the day or have Steve and his examiners take you through the routine and get some tuition.*If this is someone’s first Achievement Scheme Test they should hold a current RCC taken since 31st December 2020 (i.e. valid until 31st December 2025 or later).*If you plan to attend, either let me know on here or one of the WhatsApp groups so that we can compile a list and get some idea of numbers please. ...
