Dumfries Model Flying Club aquired the use of our current flying site in 1998. The
location is Upper Locharwoods Farm Bankend DG1 4NJ which is seven miles from Dumfries
Town Centre. The site is situated away from built up area and is accessed down a
hardcore track from the main road. The map should give you some idea how to find
us. Please refer to the Contact Us Page to obtain directions if in doubt.
Official club flying times are Sunday afternoons and Tuesday and Thursday evenings
when there is enough light. These are the times when training is likely to take
place. All flying is of course dependent on weather conditions but we are a hardy
lot and you would be surprised when people turn up in adverse weather.
In addition to the above the site is often used on a daily basis by members. This
is especially useful to practice when the site is more likely to be quiet.
From a safety perspective the club is affiliated to the Scottish Aeromoddellers Association
and we adopt their laid down safety code. With this in mind no member may fly unsupervised
until they have obtained the Bronze Safety Award.
