New members are always welcomed!

All new prospective members are invited to come along to the flying site prior to joining where you will have the opportunity to meet other members of the Club and find out more about the hobby. A committee member will; show you around Merlin Field, provide a club information pack, introduce you to some of our club members and potentially offer membership.

The best times to visit are during mornings and at weekends when committee members will be available for a chat. Alternatively, our week-day flyers will welcome you if you prefer to visit during the week. Please make yourself known on arrival.

Annual membership runs from January through to the end of December. The Club requires all pilots to have current BMFA insurance which can be paid through the Club at the same time as Club membership is arranged. CAA registration can also be arranged through the club with the BMFA.
