Note: Google Map gets the postal address incorrect.
Aeromodellers were using the airfield back in 1959. The club was formed in 1968, with the primary objective to provide an excellent flying site for radio control aircraft modellers that live in the vicinity.
The site is at the eastern end of a de-activated WW2 airfield, near the Somerset village of Westonzoyland, on the A372 Bridgwater to Langport road, set within the beautiful Somerset Levels.
We number around 110 members, of all flying abilities and ages. Our main interest is R/C powered fixed wing aircraft, mainly sport, aerobatic, scale, stand-off scale & vintage models. Other interests include helicopters, multi-rotors, and sailplanes.
Our tarmac runway flying surface is 50 yards wide, by 1/3 mile long, and in good condition. The flying site is open seven days a week to members. Club sessions are held every Sunday and Wednesdays.
We issue a regular newsletter by email to all members, usually published quarterly. (see "Latest News" page)
We are affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA). Our full yearly subscription excludes the BMFA fee, and members are required to pay the BMFA annual fee directly to them. A very good third party insurance is included with BMFA membership.
The airfield has an interesting history - details on the Airfield History page.
