4th JAN 2021 – ALL FLYING SUSPENDED UNTIL CURRENT LOCKDOWN IS ENDED
The Letchworth Model Aeronautical Society flies planes, helicopters and quadcopters at our two outdoor Letchworth sites, and gliders from various surrounding hills. We also hold regular indoor flying sessions at Weston village hall. The Club is run on friendly lines, and the members enjoy the leisurely flying and informal social contact that it offers. As of February 2021 the Society is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association, with all LMAS members holding BMFA membership.
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 electric models and gliders. Members can fly at these sites at any time during daylight hours, rugby permitting. All members are insured upon joining the Club against liability arising from third party damage and injury caused by their models.
We welcome all interested flyers, experienced or not. Experienced members are always available to help the novice flyer to learn safely, and we offer dual-control lessons to members new to the hobby. If you are interested in joining or would like more information please take a look at this web site, come along to the Letchworth rugby club site for a chat on a fine Sunday afternoon, or complete the form on our Contact page.
