Welcome to the North Wiltshire Model Aircraft Club (NWMAC) Website
The NWMAC has been in existence for more than 15 years and, with a healthy membership of 30 to 40 members, enjoys a good reputation for welcoming young people in the area to Model Aircraft Flying.
We fly from a grass runway at our site at Sutton Benger which offers excellent facilities for all types of fixed wing model aircraft, including multi-rotor, colloquially called "drones". NOTE: Hullavington became unavailable in April 2016 as MOD are selling the site.
Members are required to be members of the BMFA, which the club is affiliated to - the BMFA providing the insurance and the code under which the club operates. The club promotes the BMFA achievement scheme with training conducted using the BMFA "Up & Away" manual. (See "Links" page)
Please Note:New adult new members require recommendation by a club member and then sponsored by a committee member or who are direct relatives of existing members. All new applications have to be approved by the NWMAC Committee. Potential junior membership (under 18's) can only be accepted provided the parent or Guardian undertakes to remain with their child at all times whilst at the club sites. The Club operates in conjunction with the BMFA child and vulnerable adult protection policy.
Do come along and see for yourself what the club and the hobby are about - training takes place mainly on Sunday mornings at Sutton Benger between 10am and 2pm.
For this year the one off joining fee of £45 for Adult and Senior members has been waived. The current annual membership fee is £65 for adults and £20 for juniors who are under 18 years of age. There is also Family Membership available. Please contact the Secretary for Junior Family membership.
Membership fee for the BMFA is currently £33 for all Adults and £17 for Juniors. There is also a Family membership available for the BMFA and that currently stands at £33 for the first Adult, £22 for the second and £13 for juniors.
