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 near Tring which we own and which is suitable
for all but the very largest models, but not particularly quadcopter friendly.
The other, near Chesham is leased and is better suited to smaller models
of all disciplines and is more quadcopter friendly. Both are situated
in beautiful green belt countryside and have excellent close mown take
off and landing areas.
Currently we are closed to potential new members requiring training. However
we are open to competent flyers.. If you would like to join us, we suggest
that you visit the Newground field, near Tring, on a Saturday. Our gate
is always closed but unlocked if flyers are there. Any member will be
pleased to show you around and introduce you to the other members flying.
At other times it may be possible to arrange to visit midweek. Please
if you are interested. We will then arrange a mutually agreeable first
meeting at the flying field. We want you to see if this club is one that
can help you to enjoy model flying.
If you do not already hold a BMFA ‘A’ or ‘B’ rating, we allow safe pilots
to practice their skills as solo flyers. Your flying ability will be assessed
before you fly by one of our instructors who will also brief you the local
We also have a BMFA certified
examiner 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.
In addition to flying, the club support a social side which includes regular
newsletters, BBQ’s and club nights.
Membership of the club requires a one off joining fee as well as annual
club fees. There is no joining fee if you are a junior or in full time
education. We are also an affiliate club to the BMFA which requires that
you hold BMFA insurance to fly. See our membership
page for details.
If you like what you see and
want to apply for membership, you can contact the club through our membership
secretary for an application form.
HAPPY FLYING AND REMEMBER "FLY SAFE AND BE SEEN TO FLY SAFE"
