All about the SLMFC

We are a small friendly club and have been established now for about 6 years. This however, does not mean we are lacking in either enthusiasm, flying ability and building skills, in fact our members regularly build and fly a multitude of different model aircraft and regularly appear in popular model magazines.

We are fully affiliated with the BMFA and adhere to their Guidelines and Rules.

The Club Officers for 2012 are as Follows

Chairman - Alan Woodfine
Secretary - Wayne Butler
Treasurer - Gail Woodfine

Committee Members
Danny Howard
Ian Mcintosh

We Fly from a number of safe locations in the Barrow and South Lakes area.
  Our registered flying site is Walney Airfield and are allowed to fly there with the kind permission of BAE SYSTEMS any day the airfield is operational. We also fly from Cark Airfield which again offers us great views, you can see where we are by clicking here and accessing our location map.
