Established in 1963, Telford Model Flying Club is one of the longest running RC model flying clubs in the Midlands area.
We cater for all types of airplanes and helis, including i/c, electric and even turbines!
We have a fantastic flying site with superb facilities and a large car-parking area serving Shropshire, Staffordshire and West Midlands.
Monthly Club Meetings
We meet six nights/year. AGM at
Longdon Upon Tern Village Hall
but normally at the field at 7:00pm inside our club house.
The Chairman will update the members with the latest events happening within the club. It is a very informal gathering where we can have a few hot drinks and a chat.
Our 30m Metal Runway
Our flying field is near Isombridge, in the Shropshire countryside, some 2 miles north-west of Telford. The nearest postcode is for the nearby farm - TF6 6NF.
Most members fly at the weekend, which is when training is available. Solo flyers can fly every day if you wish from 10am until it is dark! Summer evenings being popular also for those members that work.
We are looking for new members again. A few places remain for Plane and Heli pilots.
For new pilots who join (become a member), club has a Week-End training school. Simulator at first, followed by a club owned Airplane flown with our instructors and using "buddy-Box". To allow a lower cost start-up for those that wish.
Club and BMFA membership is still required along with CAA registration.
Training has to be pre-arranged (we do not leave equipment at site) and we limit to two trainees at any one time.
