About Us

This page will hold information about our club, our history and links to documents such as our Constitution and Privacy Notice. It is currently under construction so check back in the future to see progress.

We were founded in 1969 as Spenborough Aeronautical Society (S.A.S.) and are heading for our 50th year as a club in a years time. The club was renamed The West Yorkshire Model Flying Club (WYMFC) in 1973, when we moved to our present flying field at Ringstone nr. Halifax. We subsequently obtained full planning permission to carry on flying at this site.

Although our membership is quite small, we still have some of our original founders as active members.

We welcome fliers with fixed wing, helicopters and multi-copters. We have a large open flying site which includes an south west facing slope ideal for soaring. During the winter months we have taken up indoor flying typically flying small electric helicopters, fixed wing and even ornithopters!

Although not a 'competitive' club we always try to arrange a few light hearted competitions during the summer.

If you would like to start or rekindle your interest in flying model aircraft then we would love to meet you.

The Club holds a social meeting once a month, usually on the first Thursday of the month at Liversedge Cricket Club. Past meetings have had talks by invited speakers or club members, practical demonstrations, quizzes, films or discussions.
