Welcome to Chesham Model Flying Club
Chesham Model Flying Club (CMFC) has grown steadily since its formation in 1988. We have the use of two prime flying sites, one of which we own, and both situated in beautiful green belt countryside. Both sites have excellent close mown take off and landing areas.
We are a very professionally run club and, through our extensive contributions to flight safety, flying field purchase and countryside conservation, we have earned the reputation from the BMFA (British Model Flying Association) of being one of the premier clubs in the country.
Our Flight Training Scheme comprises a number of BMFA approved instructors, who are all ‘B’ certificate rated pilots and work on a rota basis on a Saturday morning at our Newground flying site. The instructor’s rota is included in the club newsletter, with all relevant information on how to contact us.
We also have BMFA certified examiners within the club, so when the time comes for those 'A' and 'B' Certificates, we can guide you and then arrange for you to take the test.
New members are always made very welcome. If you would like to join us, please call the Chief Flying Instructor, Richard Ginger (01296 688030) and arrange a mutually agreeable first meeting at the flying field. Richard will then introduce you to our club and its benefits. You can also see if this club is one that can help you to enjoy model flying.
If you join our club as a solo flyer and do not hold a BMFA 'A' or 'B' certificate of competence, your flying ability will be assessed before you fly at either field unaccompanied.
Our club is dedicated to helping you, the aero modeller, to get the most enjoyment and satisfaction out of your hobby, but at the same time SAFETY is of the utmost importance.
If you like what Richard Ginger introduces and want to apply for membership, you can contact the club through our membership secretary Richard Johnson for an application form.
HAPPY FLYING AND REMEMBER "FLY SAFE AND BE SEEN TO FLY SAFE"
