Sandwell Model Flying Club
Affiliated members of the BMFA
Club Registration No.:2951
Sandwell Model Flying club is a small, community based club. We launched in 2015, ith the support of Sandwell Council our small group of founder members toured the Sandwell Valley Country Park with Park Rangers exploring potential sites. We are now well settled and have worked hard to carve a Landing Strip and Pits.
We have a small membership with a vigorous community spirit and engagement. Membership is focused on a residential proximity of about 10 miles from West Bromwich and with a target figure of up to 40 members. Disabled access is being developed further to more fully accommodate the fullest measure of support for the whole community. Sandwell Valley Country Park.
Our club is affiliated to the BMFA and it is a condition that all members are also members of this national organisation and thereby have a high level of Public Indemnity insurance. The club encourages pilots from across the full breadth of aircraft and both ic & electric.. Members are encouraged to study for and achieve a minimum of BMFA Basic Proficiency Certificates 2016.
Our Instructors run regular training opportunities with members simply calling to arrange a slot in the Instructors Timetable..

Membership years run from June to May.
A limited number of vacancies are available from June 2018. SEE below.
