Northrepps Model Flying Club

I have found yet another good reason for living in North Norfolk. Northrepps MFC has a superb flying field next to a club for flyers of light aircraft, microlights and paramotors. It is maintained by Chairman Dave Wilcox. The members are friendly and welcoming even to a rusty returning flyer like me. The MFC can use the facilities of the main club including a cafe, clubhouse and toilets. There are aircraft benches, a solar panel that charges batteries for cell recharge, a caravan and a well mown runway and model helicopter landing area.

Climb and Glide competition 2018

In 2018 we are having a monthly Climb and Glide competition. We have kept the rules simple. Any Bixler-style model can be used up to 1.6m wingspan with a 30s climb. The last three down on the runway score 5, 10 and 20 points. We had the first session on January 14th, generally agreed to be great fun. Here is group picture after flying, with all models intact.
