The Exeter & District Radio Control Club flying site is located at “Wrayford Field”, near to Newton Abbot, in Devon. We provide flying training, at no extra cost, for members new to the hobby. All members are required to achieve the BMFA ‘A’ certificate of flying competence before being permitted to fly solo at Wrayford Field. BMFA insurance is mandatory for all flying members. It is now the law that anyone flying an unmanned aircraft must be registered with the CAA.
We operate the BMFA “First Time Inexperienced Flyer Scheme”, whereby any person new to the hobby may experience flying a radio controlled model aircraft using a “dual controlled” training model on up to three separate occasions. They will be accompanied by a qualified BMFA club instructor. A “First Time Inexperienced Flyer” is not required to join the E&DRCC or the BMFA to experience these “taster” flights.
Guests of members are welcome to fly with us at Wrayford Field on up to three days in any one year. They must have BMFA insurance and an appropriate BMFA certificate of flying competence and also they must be registered with the CAA. Guests planes must be noise tested to 82 db or below.
Temporary memberships are available for model flyers holidaying in the area at a cost of £20.00 for up to 4 weeks. They must have BMFA insurance and an appropriate BMFA certificate of flying competence. A temporary membership may be converted to a full membership during the same year, on payment of the remaining subscription and joining fee.
