Ivel Model Aircraft Club (Ivel MAC) was founded by Radio Control (RC) model aircraft enthusiasts in 1968 to bring together like-minded modellers to fly their RC model aircraft, have fun and talk about aircraft modelling. It affords an opportunity to meet new friends and get involved in this exciting and satisfying hobby.
Although the club has been in existence since 1968 some of its current members are founder members, so you could say they know a thing or two about flying RC aircraft.
The club has the enviable reputation of being one of the friendliest RC flying clubs around. It includes members, young and old, from all walks of life who enjoy spending time together flying RC models, meeting new people, making new friends and helping new and experienced flyers.
We have several instructors who are able to provide individual coaching 7 days a week (weather permitting) from our site near Wilden, Bedfordshire, or at our alternative site. In addition, we have BFMA Registered Examiners within the club so we are able to put flyers through the BMFA achievement tests (A or B) without the fuss or need to call in an external, unfamiliar BMFA examiner. This puts us in an enviable and unique position compared to model clubs in the area who do not have this valuable facility. (Currently we do not offer training for helicopter flying).
We’re always happy to welcome new members to our club. If you would like to know more, or get in contact with the club, please go to the contact page and fill in the contact form.The membership costs are also shown there.
Who knows - you could be flying your own model aircraft before you know it!
