High Peak Model Aero Club - Model Aircraft

High Peak Model Aero Club has a membership with an age range of 11 to 70+, drawn from a radius of
about 20 miles around Buxton in Derbyshire. The sport is an all-the-year-round activity involving
building skills, engineering and electronics and some computer control together with flying skills on
models, which are controlled and flown in the same way as their full size equivalents.
We build and fly powered, fixed wing planes, powered helicopters and gliders (either powered or towed)
at a site to the West of Buxton, within the Peak National Park.

We also have access to a number of slope
soaring sites in the area for members to use for silent glider flight.

The Club is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association and all our members become members of
this association. All members are provided with insurance through the BMFA and we use the BMFA
scheme of training and grading achievement in the sport to ensure safe flying at all times.
We are able to provide advice for newcomers to the sport in all aspects of building and equipping
models, buying equipment, and when ready for the air, training in flying with Club instructors who have
access to transmitters with “Buddy Leads”. This enables newcomers to have early “hands on experience”
of model flying.

Our first advice, if you are interested, is to visit our site at High Edge, any Wednesday or Sunday. Just
turn up and say to someone — ~we’d like to know more about model aircraft flying”. Club members
will be delighted to explain how it all works! Bring this sheet with you and we will know how you found
out about us Alternatively, call in for a chat at our monthly meetings at the Railway Hotel in Buxton —
8.00pm on the first Tuesday each month.

decide you would like to get involved, new members are always welcome.
