.....................The Club has a new flying site.......Details below....................

Welcome to the HDMAC Website

NEW FLYING SITE
The Club is pleased to announce that we have recently acquired the use of a new site.
It will be open for use from the weekend 7th/8th of May. Inductions for existing Club members will take place on these days between 9.30am - 11.30am and 1.30pm - 3.30pm
The site is primarily aimed at allowing the Club to support the newer rotary wing Quadcopter/Drone type models and also cater for traditional electric helicopters up to the 450/500 size.
Although the site is focussed on the rotary fliers it will also be available for the flying of small foamie and shockie electric fixed wing models.
Whilst situated in a relatively remote location and shared with a local sports complex, the site enjoys great facilities with an on site cafe, toilets and good access and parking.
If you are not an existing Club member but feel that this new site may be of interest to you then feel free to contact one of the committee who would be only too happy for you to come along to meet us and visit the site to see what it can offer you.


Last year HDMAC invited several local clubs to come and join us

for an Open Day and BBQ. Below is a selection of images 


from the
 day. 
As you can see, it was a GREAT DAY!

 

About HDMAC

Huddersfield and District Model Aircraft Club was formed in 1946 and in a typical year has over 130 members interested in designing, building and flying all types of model aircraft, ranging from ultra-lightweight indoor models to slope and thermal soaring, electric flight, I.C. powered models, helicopters and ducted fan and gas turbine models.
Membership is open to people of all ages from Juniors to Senior Citizens and all levels of ability from beginners to the highly experienced competition flyers who are always ready to assist the new and less experienced members. The Club welcomes beginners and has several designated instructors who are available to teach them how to fly their model in a safe and proficient manner and achieve the BMFA A Certificate which is required to fly solo.

The Club bought and owns a flying field known as The Whams situated at Upper Cumberworth in open countryside with planning permission for flying all types of model aircraft at most times of the day, seven days a week, and situated about a kilometre from the nearest habitation.

A large off-road car park is available adjacent to the flying area.

We have also recently been given kind permission by the landowners to fly slope soaring models from hillsides called Hullock Bank, Royd Moor and Whitley Edge.

The Club is proud to be affiliated to our National Governing Body, the BMFA, and we are also a founder member and affiliated to the Marsden Moor Soaring Association (MMSA) which permits club members to fly slope soaring models on National Trust Property in this area and also on other recognised NT sites throughout the country by arrangement with the local model clubs.
