If you are interested in discovering more about our club, then feel free to come along to one of our regular meetings. Entry is free, you do not need to be an AMARC member to attend a meeting. Look at the News Flash box to see where and when the next meeting will take place, during the winter months meetings start at 8pm and guests or potential members can come along to meet us there. During the Summer months (May until the end of August) we hold evening meetings on the field the last Tuesday of each month from 5pm until 9pm and generally enjoy a BBQ if the weather permits.

A map is available.  The location map can be found by clicking the About AMARC tab, then 'location'.  We  have planning permission in full to allow 365 day flying.  This is subject to club rules and we have  to meet strict conditions with respect to the wildlife around the site.  All members are expected to adhere to the rules at this site.

We also welcome new members after they have met a member of the club committee where the clubs aspirations and limitations will be discussed, they are  asked to read, understand and sign a prospectus agreeing to abide by the club rules and BMFA guidelines.

Guest Fliers are always welcome to join us, we prefer them to be current BMFA members and ask them to carry their card when on our sites. They must be accompanied at all times when in possession of an aircraft by the inviting member who will have cleared their visit with the Chair, Vice chair, Treasurer or Secretary beforehand. They  are limited to a MAXIMUM of Two visits per year and are the members sole responsibility.
