We fly all disciplines of Radio Controlled flight and also allow control line models but NO free flight models are allowed. We offer training at all levels and disciplines. Our club is affiliated with the British Model Flying Association, is very active and has social BBQ’s and competitions. It is very rare not to find someone flying every day.

Training

It is a club requirement that all pilots hold the BMFA “A” certificate as a minimum in order to fly unsupervised at Warboys airfield.

Training is available by arrangement and students will be mentored by one or at most two instructors.

This will be on any mutually convenient day or time, by arrangement between the student and mentor.

In the first instance students are requested to contact the training officer via the website.

Holders of the “A” certificate who wish to progress and work toward attaining their “B” certificate may also seek mentoring and should contact the training officer in the first instance.

General Guidance at the Field

General Guidance when on the field

Mobile Phones

Mobile phones are not permitted outside the car park. The exception to this is anyone flying on their own in the case of an emergency.

Pilots Flight Box

The Pilots Box marked on the field is 5 meters from the semi-circular long grass patch, it is 10 meters by 5 meters. It designates where Pilots and anyone else involved should stand or immediately make for after placing down, launching, towing or any other activity involving a presence on the air field. 

Pilots or their helpers may exit the Pilots Box for model retrieval purposes.

The Pilots Box is strictly for Pilots and Helpers/Spotters. Models are not permitted in or behind the Pilots Box. No models should be within 5m of the Pilots Box.

There should be no Spectators in the Pilots Box.

No fly zone / Model Restriction Zone

Public Safety and Awareness

A public right of way exists on the northern and western boundaries of the flying site. Notices advising the public of RMAC operations are located at both ends of the western perimeter. Walkers may be able to attract the attention of pilots for clearance to proceed but do not rely on this. Anyone who sees walkers should alert the pilots who are flying by the call ‘walkers’. Models should be flown at a good height and ideally in a different part of the site well clear (RMAC suggest at least 50m) of the walkers as they transit the boundary.
The orange lines indicate where members of the public may be spotted. Essentially all around the field. Hence the requirement to be very vigilant at all times.

Battery Charging Stations

There are two solar powered battery charging stations at the club hut available to members. Please follow these rules:

  • Maximum of one charger per panel.
  • Only one battery to be connected to each charger. Note that each station is protected by a 10A fuse.
  • Fair use policy so if someone is waiting then please remove your charger after charging your battery.
