Phoenix Model Flying Club (Dorset)

We are a small friendly club and operate from a beautiful farm site just outside Wareham in Dorset on the south coast of England; beautiful Thomas Hardy country!

As you will be aware, we are affiliated to the BMFA and our first priority is safety followed closely by a desire to enjoy our hobby to the full!

We fly principally fixed wing radio controlled model aircraft, aerobatic, sport, scale and gliders to mention but four types; both ic and electric.

In common with most other UK model flying clubs, we are endeavouring to get our operations “back on the road” post Covid lock-downs. Whereas, for several months, we operated a limited attendance regime at our flying patch, we now enjoy the freedom of 30 attendees maximum at any one time with no am/pm restrictions. We can fly all day!

The Club committee has been working hard to fully refurbish our cherished “airfield” post mole damage and Covid. Activities are almost complete in that respect and we all look forward to a most enjoyable 2022 flying season. (Members please note:- Under no circumstances must we access our flying site prior to our landlord agreed start time of 10:00am.)

The committee recognises the value of evening membership meetings to discuss items of interest and enjoy each other’s company. With the backdrop of coronavirus, such gatherings had to cease in 2020. Like many other organisations, we are now trying to recover from the loss and hope, at least, to now hold meetings on a quarterly basis. Keep watching the “Latest News” posts for, umm, news!

We offer free tuition for beginners, guiding them through to the BMFA “A” qualification level using the “Buddy-box” system and later to the BMFA “B” level.

Please come and join in with the fun!
