Indoor Flying

The High Wycombe and District Model Aircraft Club has hosted successful indoor flying sessions in recent years. Unfortunately they could not be held recently due to the pandemic. However

we hope to hold sessions again next winter.

 

Pilot Requirements: BMFA membership is required and BMFA membership

cards/slips will be required to be shown before flying. Non-BMFA members who are

novice flyers will be considered if they contact HWDMAC via the Club Contact Page 

before the event.

 

Permissible Models: Models are limited to small indoor electric models weighing

less than 100g. Heavier indoor electric models will probably be OK but get in touch beforehand, using the above link, to make sure.

 

Costs: Flying costs will be advised before the next session. There is car park charge of 50p for 2 hours.

 

Flying Rules:

  • Pilots to stand in the pilot’s box when flying.

  • All aircraft to fly left hand circuits.

  • No flying behind the line of the pilot’s box

  • Limited number of models flying at the same time:

          o600mm wingspan or bigger – 3 planes

          oLess than 600mm wingspan – 6 planes

  • Aircraft must NOT be flown within 6’ of the ceiling:

          oThe ceiling height is 30’ so it isn’t a problem

          oThere is a risk that models flying close to the ceiling will trigger the fire alarm sensors

 

Other Restrictions

  • No mains electrical equipment is allowed.
