All about the Phoenix Model Flying Club
Britain’s most easterly model club is situated just off the A12 in Pakefield, Lowestoft and is friendly, well established and welcoming club that enjoys a varied and comprehensive mix of ages from eight to eighty. We have a great mix of helicopter and fixed wing fliers, with all types from small electric planes to world class one third scale petrol powered beauties welcome. However we cannot accommodate gas turbine jet aircraft.
New members, both experienced pilots and absolute beginners, are always welcome and we pride our selves on our open and friendly atmosphere. Helpful advice is always available. Club instructors are available for all disciplines and they can take a novice from the first flight to BMFA ‘A’ and ‘B’ certificate standard.
Membership of the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) is a 100% commitment, so before any person can fly at our site they must be a member. There are no exceptions.
There is an annually elected committee. Club meetings are held on a monthly basis on the third Wedneday of each month at The King Alfred public house at Lowestoft. All are very welcome.
The club is very safety conscious, but club rules are kept to the minimum needed to ensure everybody has a safe and enjoyable time. Like all good friends we look after each other’s safety as well as our own.
The site access is controlled. The landing strip is mown grass and is adequate for the largest models. Flying times are from 10.00 am until 1 hour before dusk, 7 days a week. The two most important ideals we encourage are “be safe and have fun”.
