The Letchworth Model Aeronautical Society flies planes,
helicopters and quadcopters at our two outdoor Letchworth sites, and also
gliders from various surrounding hills. We also hold
regular indoor flying sessions at Weston village hall.
The powered site at Letchworth Rugby Club is located behind the North
Herts Leisure Centre in Baldock Road and is used to fly powered models
of various types, both glow plug and electric. Flying takes place here
on Sunday afternoons from about 2pm, weather and Rugby permitting. The
silent flight site is situated at Wilbury Hill Farm on the western
outskirts of Letchworth, and is used for flying quiet electric models and powered gliders.
It has a small club hut which provides facilities for model building,
Committee meetings and the storage of Club equipment etc.
The club was founded on October 24th 1938 and is therefore one of the
oldest established model flying clubs in the country. Every year we
elect a Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, and Committee at our Annual
General Meeting. There are a set of Rules and a Code of Practice which
govern the Club and its members' activities. The Club is run on
friendly lines, and the members enjoy the leisurely flying and informal
social contact that it offers. We welcome all interested flyers,
experienced or not. Experienced members are always available to help
the novice flyer to learn safely. All members are insured upon joining
the Club against liability arising from third party damage and injury
caused by their models.
We are always happy to help those interested in model flying in any way
we can. If you are interested in joining or would like more information
please take a look at this web site, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or
come along to the
Letchworth rugby club site for a chat on a Sunday afternoon.
