Aeromodellers were using Westonzoyland airfield as far back as 1959. The club was formed in 1968, with the primary objective being to provide an excellent flying site for radio control aircraft modellers. The site is at the eastern end of the de-activated WW2 airfield, near the Somerset village of Westonzoyland, on the A372 Bridgwater to Langport road.
We currently number around 70 members, of all flying abilities and ages. Our main interest is R/C powered fixed wing aircraft, mainly sport, aerobatic, scale, stand-off scale & vintage models. Other interests include ducted fan & gas turbine jets, helicopters, electric powered models and sailplanes.
Our tarmac runway flying surface is 50 yards wide, by 1/2 mile long, and in good condition. The flying site is open seven days a week to members, with Sundays and Wednesdays being the most popular sessions. Please note however, that the airfield is on private land, with access, via a padlocked gate, restricted to members and guests.
Members also get together for a regular monthly clubnight, normally on the first Wednesday of every month at the local George Inn, Middlezoy, starting at 7.30 pm during the winter, and after evening flying during the summer months.
We are affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA). Our yearly subscription includes the BMFA fee (unless affiliated through another club). Third party insurance is included with BMFA membership.
Visitors on holiday or temporarily in the area are welcome at our flying site, provided they are current BMFA members. Attendance is by prior arrangement only with our General Secretary. (See Contact Us page)
