Due to the weather forecast for Sunday, the South West Heli Fly In has been cancelled.
Woodspring Wings MAC is one of the few model-flying clubs in the UK to own its own site. The flying field and the two adjacent fields (also owned by the Club) total about 21 acres of flat land bordered by streams and ditches on the edge of the North Somerset Levels.
The whole area has been appointed a “Site of Special Scientific Interest”. This has placed an extra burden of responsibility on the Club and we have been pleased to comply with all SSSI requirements concerning land management, in some cases going “the extra mile” providing, for example, wild-life habitats around the borders of our property.
Club members are active in all areas of radio-controlled aircraft, including helicopters, jets, and gliders, as well as the more usual fixed wing models. Some of the largest models in the world have been built by our members and displayed at Shows in this country and abroad.
