2021 UK Events Calendar

With some sort of normality now returning, here are a selection of events that may be of interest to free flight scale modellers. All meetings are subject to ever changing government regulations so I would recommend checking with the organisers that they are still on before setting off.


June 25th, 26th and 27th, SAM 35 Retro-fest

BMFA National Cenre, Buckminster. On Saturday 26th - Eddie Riding Trophy scale competition - three open classes to be flown plus EJR designs event.


July 13th and 14th, Shuttleworth Collection Scale Weekend

Old Warden aerodrome, Nr Biggleswade.
Includes Masefield Trophy and Earl Stahl scale events. Further info contact John Ashmole 01406 370188


August 14th and 15th, BMFA Outdoor Scale Nationals

BMFA National Centre, Buckminster.
Due to the traditional Nationals at Barkston Heath being cancelled due to Covid 19, the Scale Tech Committee will be running an all disciplines Scale Nationals this year at Buckminster.

All classes are pre entry and a entry form will be available on the STC website and can be emailed back or printed out and posted. Due to only having 2 days instead of the traditional 3 of a bank holiday weekend, please note that the starting times may be considerably earlier for static judging and flying.

Camping is available (pay direct to Manny @ Buckminster) and Covid 19 precautions of distancing, mask wearing and hand washing will be in use.


Sunday 12th September, The Peterborough Flying Aces meeting

Starts 10 am at Ferry Meadows, Nene Park, Peterborough.

One of my favourite meetings of the year. Loads of classes to enter, but all very informal, and you have all day to get your flights in.

Events include:

Jetex/Rapier/EDF scale, P20, Cloud Tramp, open rubber scale, open C02/electric scale, towline/hi-start glider, HLG, duration rubber ratio, VMC Pilot and KK Robin rubber duration, Cloud Tramp, *NEW* KK Nostalgia class for EezeBilt Rapier/Sedan/Sportster, Frog Senior Series event, and mass launch. {max set on the day}


September 18th and 19th, Shuttleworth Collection Festival of Flight Model Weekend

Old Warden aerodrome, Nr Biggleswade.

Includes the Rubber Bowden event, which is great fun and open to scale models as well as sports models. Further info contact John Ashmole 01406 370188

Saturday September 25th, Peterborough Model Flying Club indoor meeting

Bushfield Leisure centre, Peterborough

Special extended meeting 10am to 4pm which offers a great chance to trim your new models in a large hall prior to the November Nijmegen competition (though you can of course just come along and fly for fun). As an additional incentive, Graham Kennedy has kindly offered to carry out static / documentation assessments if you bring them along with you.

November 12th to 14th, 10th International Indoor Fly In

Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Meeting not yet confirmed - the organisers are keeping a close watch on international Covid travel regulations which could make the event unviable. I'm keeping everything crossed that it will be able to go ahead.

Scale classes flown will be F4F, F4D, F4E, Pistachio, Kit Scale and Profile Scale. Trimming session available on the Friday Afternoon (November 12th).
