The North Leeds Model Flying Club is a BMFA affiliated club with a history going back more than thirty years, and today boasts a growing membership. We have a superb flying site in a relatively secluded location near Almscliff Crag between Leeds and Harrogate. The site has two runways each approximately 100m x 25m catering for all wind directions, and we have a hard-standing car park and a club hut.

The club caters for fixed-wing aircraft of all types,  both glow and petrol. Glider tugs are used from time to time for silent flight. Flying is allowed every day during daylight hours.

The club actively encourages members to continuously improve their skills as their flying progresses. We have a strong commitment to safety, and new members who have no formal BMFA qualifications are expected to demonstrate a minimum level of safety awareness and flying competence by undertaking a “Green Peg” Award before they are allowed to fly solo. We are also intending to arrange for regular BMFA examinations through the BMFA Northern Area Committee for those who wish to take A, B, or C certification.

We currently have a limited number of places for new members, please contact us for further details. Please feel free to visit the site, you will find members flying most days, weather permitting, Saturday being the most popular.
