2016 UK Events Calendar

Here are a selection of events that may be of interest to free flight scale modellers. To be safe, I would recommend checking with the organisers nearer the time to make sure nothing has changed.

Sunday 4th September, The 19th Peterborough Flying Aces Nationals

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.

Jetex/Rapier scale, P20, Cloud Tramp, open rubber scale, open C02/electric scale, Jetex/Rapier duration, C02/electric Golden Age, towline/hi-start glider, HLG, duration rubber ratio, Frog Senior Series event and mass launch.



September 11th, Oxford Model Flying Club scale meeting

Port Meadow Oxford. After the success of last year's inaugural event, it's good to see it being held again this year - events for open rubber, open power scale and kit scale - maybe Rapier/Jetex scale as well.



September 24th and 25th, Shuttleworth Collection Festival of Flight Model Weekend

Old Warden aerodrome, Nr Biggleswade.


November 12th and 13th, 6th International Indoor Fly In
