The model aircraft flying club
in central Scotland near Cobbinshaw, Tarbrax and Auchengray, just
south of Livingston, West Lothian was set up in December 1998.
The objectives were to provide good facilities, good training,
good communications, and to provide the opportunity for people
to get started. We have turned the site from a basic peat bog
into the excellent site you see today. We continue to attract
both highly skilled flyers as well as that important commodity:
beginners. Please feel free to come along for a day's flying and
check us out when you will be very welcome. If you are a beginner and want a taster session please contact us first so we can arrange for a model to be available.
If you are a jet pilot please see here for our latest information on turbine models.
Drones are permitted at our club as long as the pilot is qualified and has the relevant insurance for recreational use. Our Club is for recreational purposes only, and as such we cannot accept persons who are intent on using our training and recreational set up to assist them in achieving any personal gain. All drone flyers have to comply with club rules, SAA rules and any rules by the CAA.
