About the experience

If you're pretty nifty with flying radio controlled model planes, and want to progress your flight skills further, there is no better place to hone your skills than at the home of the British Model Flying Association (BMFA). In the village of Buckminster in Leicestershire, set in 40 acres of countryside in close proximity to Melton Mowbray and Grantham, you've got the perfect environment and space to learn more complex flight techniques, under the guidance of your qualified training coach, Russ. He is passionate about flying planes - both the scaled down models and the real life ones - and also happens to be a qualified instructor and examiner in commercial aircraft flying too. He is passionate, patient and what he doesn't know about flying model planes isn't worth knowing. In your advanced training, you'll learn how to really stretch your wings, as you attempt to tackle and master some ambitious aerobatic manoeuvres with your model plane! Also on site at the BMFA, there's a well stocked RC model museum, the Flyers' Cafe, and plenty of activities and events you get involved with throughout the year, including competitions, fly-ins and swap meets.
