Welcome to the Banbury Model Flying Club
Situated in Moreton Pinkney near Banbury, Our club provides a safe environment for the flight of radio controlled aircraft of all types.
Set in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and covering over 6 acres, we boast an immaculately maintained close cut and rolled runway 160 metres in length and over 75 metres wide with plenty of parking and pit space for even the busiest of days. Being north facing, there is no sun glare meaning your only limits is your fuel and charging. Our club hut is the perfect place to warm up on cold winter days and has cooking facilities with comfortable seating.
If you are just starting out in the hobby you will benefit from receiving help and guidance from experienced club members who will be glad to give you their time in order to get you up and flying as soon as possible. The club has several registered instructors who will provide free of charge training and will help you to achieve the BMFA 'A' Certificate, which ensures your flying is safe and allows you to fly unsupervised. More experienced flyers can improve their skills with the help of the instructors and support of other members and can aim to achieve the 'B' or 'C' Certificate if they wish. A full copy of the club rules are available, please contact us for more details.
