Welcome to Sale Model Flying Club

Flying from Banky Meadows since 1974


The Sale Model Flying Club has been flying radio controlled model aircraft on the existing site since 1974. Our members consist of all age groups from 8 to 75(at the last count!) who fly various types of models including trainers, scale models, aerobatic aircraft, float planes, vintage and helicopters.


We operate a comprehensive training scheme for novices which is internationally recognised and have registered examiners who can take candidates for their ‘A’ or 'B' proficiency certificates. These examiners are also able to examine candidates from other clubs. Prospective members and visitors from other clubs are always welcome to enjoy our facilities by prior arrangement (when a club member is on site). Instruction for novices is free at all times under the supervision of our qualified flying instructors.


We suggest a visit to the flying field before you set out to buy your equipment will enable you to decide your best course of action as there is as you might expect, a ‘right way’ and a ‘wrong way’ to go about starting and ensure you are operatingl legally!


We are affiliated to the British Model Flying Association, ‘BMFA’ for short, which was founded in 1922 and is the Royal Aeronautical Clubs designated official body to control model flying in the United Kingdom.
