Our club was first formed in 1968 and is affiliated with the British Model Flying Association. The main purposes of the club are to encourage, assist and promote the flying of model aircraft of all types. The club currently has over fifty members and there is a wealth of experience should you require any assistance.
My thanks to John for bringing to my attention to the proposed European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The regulations could affect the future of model flying in Europe which will include the Isle of Man, if it goes ahead without change. Hopefully, the BMFA and the proposed European Model Flying Union can get it amended. Further information from the BMFA can be found on the following link:
