About the Club

Sedgemoor Radio Control Flying Club was formed in 1968, with the aim of providing excellent facilities 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.  The airfield has an interesting history, details of which can be found on our Airfield History page.

We currently number almost 100 members of all flying abilities and ages. Most of our flying is with powered fixed wing aircraft, i/c, electric and jet turbine.  We have space to accommodate helicopters and multi-rotors, which are required to operate and fly downwind of the main pit area. Gliders may be flown, but must not be landed in the crops, if these are being grown in the fields either side of the hard runway.

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 full annual subscription includes BMFA membership (with Associate membership available at a reduced rate, for those affiliated through another club). Third party insurance is included with BMFA membership.

Visitors on holiday or temporarily in the area may use our flying site by prior arrangement, provided they have current BMFA membership.  Please contact our General Secretary in the first instance. (See Contact Us page)
