Welcome to both members and visitors alike to the official Burton Model Flying Club
web site. Burton Model Flying club is a growing club with some truly excellent facilities
to cater for all Radio Controlled flying from its 12-acre field near Anslow village
just outside Burton-on-Trent in Staffordshire.
The BMFC is a club that caters for all kinds of radio controlled flying from small
model electric flight to large model aircraft, jet turbines and helicopters. The
field has two well-kept grass runways. You can see the Google View on our Flying
The flying hours are during daylight hours 9.am to 8.pm (or dusk) Monday to Saturday
and from 9.am to 2.pm on Sunday with electric flying thereafter until dusk.
Last year the Club has installed a prefabricated clubhouse on the site for the convenience
of the members and their guests. We intend to run some club competitions and some
social events on the flying field to welcome and encourage the many new members who
joined in 2010 and 2011 to get to know the others.
Like many other Clubs, we have to be mindful of the impact of flying on nearby householders
and the ever present threat of noise complaints. that continue to cause such difficulty
to other model flying clubs, even to the point of losing their flying field altogether.
Therefore, we do trust members to ensure that they and their guests do conform to
our rules and fly safely. Whilst the Club stipulates that all members must also
hold BMFA insurance (and be prepared to show their BMFA membership card on request
by other members), the Club committee has not as yet seen the need to insist that
all members must hold their ‘A’ certificate to fly at our flying field (although
Junior flying is encouraged but only on the basis that they are accompanied by their
parent, guardian or adult close family member.
We hope you enjoy browsing through this web site with it’s range of interesting features
