Harrogate Model Flying Club is based in Harrogate in the heart of North Yorkshire. The club originally started in the mid 60’s flying on the Stray, the club has grown steadily since its inception and current has a membership in the mid 40's.
Since those early days on the Stray we have had several flying sites, our current sites are at Goldsborough and a hundred acre site just outside Beckwithshaw. On Saturdays we have use of Dishforth Airfield which allows us to fly larger aircraft than would be practical at our Goldsborough Site (check out the Gallery to see the sorts of aircraft our members fly).
We welcome all levels of ability, from a novice with a small basic aircraft to experienced pilots with a large aircraft, helicopter, drone or glider, all are welcome.
