Cumbernauld Model Flying Club

Welcome

Engines running fine, but i'm sure were missing something !!!!

With members of all age groups, we are one of the largest aeromodelling clubs in Scotland.

Due to the foresight of our founding members we are fortunate to own our flying site and  cater for fixed wing and helicopter flying. Come visit and you will see we are one of the friendliest clubs, with unrivalled facilities.

The field is available to members seven days a week. Weekend flying starts mid morning and on any reasonable weekday you are sure to find the club open from midday. Spectators are welcome, so too visiting flyers, who should browse our flying rules.

You can chat to members or the committee on our forum, if you are just starting out you might like to browse our getting started guide. 

Location

Cava IC engine testing, eventually once the C of G sorted out, went on to have a good maiden flight.

We are easy to find to the south of Cumbernauld, near Pallacerigg Country Park. Follow any signs you see for the park.

Cumbernauld town centre has two main roundabouts. One sports an ASDA, the other a TESCO.  Approaching the TESCO roundabout on the west side of Cumbernauld you will find a slip road for Carlisle (A73), follow that. This road is also signed "Palacerigg Country Park" on brown tourist information signs. You will crest the brow of a hill and approach a mini-roundabout. Take first left then first right and head up the hill. You will pass the "Stables" bar which lies just off road to the right. Continue on up the hill looking left for the first entrance to a disused layby, take the second entrance and drive up the short lane to our car park.

Beginners

Learning to fly a model on your own can be a frustrating and expensive experience. Don't do it! Come and join the club and we will show you how to fly safely and responsibly. We will teach you on the "buddy box" system where an experienced pilot can take control immediately you are in trouble.

The club supports the Scottish Aeromodellers Association flight training scheme and you will initially be trained to "Bronze" standard and on achieving that you may fly solo.

Importantly, by joining the club, you will be covered by the SAA's insurance while you fly and train.

So don't hesitate, bring along your model, even if it's still in the box. Club members will be happy to check it out or offer advice on how to complete it. If you haven't bought anything yet come along anyway, there may be second hand kit on offer if not advice on what to purchase.
