About Peterborough Model Flying Club

PMFC was formed in 1938 and is one of the oldest and most successful model flying clubs in the country with a history of innovating new and successful control line and free flight events.


PMFC is a multi discipline club with flying sites for free flight, control line and radio control (although we are not a predominantly radio club).

Members of PMFC are a group of like-minded people who enjoy the challenge of building and successfully flying miniature aircraft, whether it be for fun, in low key club competitions, or in national or even international events.

Above all we fly for enjoyment in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and our members are all more than happy to offer the benefit of their experience and knowledge to others, whether a beginner or a seasoned campaigner. You never stop learning with aeromodelling!

Free Flight

Free Flight is flown at Ferry Meadows on Tuesdays and Fridays after 1.00pm. Sadly I/C models are not permitted at this site.

Control Line

Control line models are flown at Thorpe Meadows, Peterborough every Monday and Wednesday 1pm until dusk


During the winter months the club runs six indoor flying sessions at Bushfield Leisure Centre and monthly, daytime meetings, on Fridays from 10.30 to 12.30, at Peakirk Village Hall. These meetings include talks, demonstrations and an auction.


PMFC is affiliated to the national body representing aeromodelling in the UK, The British Model Flying Association (BMFA).

The BMFA, with around 36,000 members, offers not only a national voice to support our aims, but also the organisational infrastructure for competitions and most importantly, comprehensive third party insurance cover for all members.

Membership of the BMFA is a condition of membership of PMFC - one of the very few conditions we have!
