The Dagenham Model Aero Club is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA).

We fly a wide variety of fixed wing models powered by electric or internal combustion engines.

Until recently DMAC used to be based in Dagenham Central Park where the club had flown since the mid 1930’s, but the council have started site works within Central Park. So the council have moved the club to Leys Park, Ballards Road, Dagenham, Essex, RM10 9AJ.

Although we are primarily a fixed wing club, a few members have been dabbling with helicopters up to 300mm and quadcopters.

The club has a number of fixed wing instructors who will help newcomers to the hobby learn to fly.

An IC model must have a noise certificate confirming that it has met the requirements of the D o E Noise Code for the minimisation of Noise from Model Aircraft (Noise Code) before it can be flown from the club field.
