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. There is also an area within the park for control line use. We fly at Dagenham Central Park. Wood Lane, Dagenham, Essex, and have been flying in the area since the mid 1930’s.
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. The club also has a BMFA examiner who will conduct tests for BMFA certificates.
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.
Weather permitting we are able to fly Monday to Friday from 10:00 until 13.00 and from 17.00 to 20.00 or Dusk whichever is earlier.
On Saturday and Sunday or Bank Holidays, summer months flying times are 14.00 until 18.00 and winter months flying times are12.00 until 16.00.
