About Hertford Model Aero Club

The club was founded in the early 1970s by a group of aeromodellers looking for a permanent flying site in the Hertford area.

Since then it has built up into a healthy and vibrant club with currently approximately forty five members. Our main disciplines are radio controlled fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, sport and scale, both IC and electric powered.

Important News - CAA registration. This affects all club members, please visit the Members Info page of this website for information about this important new legal requirement.

Vacancies - The club has vacancies for new members (juniors or seniors), and we are able to train those new to model flying. If you want to get a taste of the hobby, then come and visit us (please arrange in advance via email.), and maybe have a taster flight with the help of an experienced club flyer, using one of the club trainer planes.
