The Letchworth Model Aeronautical Society flies planes,
helicopters and quadcopters at our two outdoor Letchworth sites,
and gliders from various surrounding hills. We also hold regular
indoor flying sessions at Weston village hall.
The powered site at Letchworth Rugby Club is located behind the
North Herts Leisure Centre in Baldock Road and is used to fly
powered models of various types, both glow plug and electric.
Flying takes place here on Sunday afternoons from about 2pm,
weather and Rugby permitting. The silent flight site is situated
at Wilbury Hill Farm on the western outskirts of Letchworth, and
is used for flying quiet electric models and powered gliders. It
has a small club hut which provides facilities for model building,
Committee meetings and the storage of Club equipment etc.
The club was founded on October 24th 1938 and is therefore one of
the oldest established model flying clubs in the country. Every
year we elect a Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, and Committee at
our Annual General Meeting. There are a set of Rules and a Code of
Practice which govern the Club and its members' activities. The
Club is run on friendly lines, and the members enjoy the leisurely
flying and informal social contact that it offers. We welcome all
interested flyers, experienced or not. Experienced members are
always available to help the novice flyer to learn safely. All
members are insured upon joining the Club against liability
arising from third party damage and injury caused by their models.
We are always happy to help those interested in model flying,
offering dual-control lessons to members new to the hobby. If you
are interested in joining or would like more information please
