The Club

Welcome to Worcester Model Aero Club. The WMAC is among the oldest model flying clubs in the world, having been formed in the early 1900’s (There is a brief history of the club on the history page).

We are fortunate enough to have two grass flying sites. One is in the Droitwich area (just to the east of the town) and one at Rushwick, just to the west of Worcester.

The club caters for all aspects of model flying, and our members fly model types ranging from micro indoor quadcopters, to large fixed wing scale aeroplanes. We encourage all major disciplines of the hobby, although our sites are not suitable for gas turbine flying.

We have modelers who build their own models either from plans or commercial kits and those who buy from a wide range of “Almost Ready To Fly” kits.

With the advance of electric battery and motor technology an increasing number of members are flying electric models for their convenience but I.C. is still popular for larger models.

We adhere strictly to the BMFA Award scheme and have club examiners who will enable you to obtain your fixed wing “A” and “B” certificate. 

It is a condition of membership that all members must also be members of the BMFA and registered with the CAA registration scheme where appropriate. 

Club members normally maintain and mow the runways and pit areas (each site has a sit on mower) although sometimes a contractor has to be used. It is normally possible to park close to pit areas but in winter periods it is sometimes necessary to park a little further away and carry models and equipment to the pits.

The club is very aware of it’s environmental responsibilities particularly in respect of noise pollution and all member are expected to silence their models by the use of appropriate silencing methods.

If you’d like to come along and see what goes on, please contact one of the committee members on the contacts page and we’ll be happy to arrange to meet you at a club site.
