The site occupies 43 acres of open and largely unobstructed countryside set within a traditional farming estate and presents an ideal location for the sport of model flying to take place.

The location represents an important facility for many of the model flying disciplines in the UK and will host an annual programme of events and competitions as well as the opportunity to just turn up and fly.

Additionally the location provides facilities for education through model aircraft and the opportunity for those who are thinking of trying model flying to participate in a “trial lesson experience”.

Facilities at BMFA Buckminster are continually evolving, take a look around this website to find information on the various activities and opportunities and for information on visiting the National Visitor Centre for Model Flying.  

We look forward to welcoming you at BMFA Buckminster.
