THE END OF AN ERA

31st December 2019 - All model flying at AAC Middle Wallop ceased with effect from today following withdrawal of authorisation by the military authority.

Aeromodelling at RAF Middle Wallop (as it was) has been going on since the early 60's to my own knowledge, and almost certainly before that.  Our club has an unbroken history since the 1970's when it was originally established as a military club. Alas, it has now come to an end.

Full-size recreational flying will intensify from 2020 onwards and despite many previous years of side by side weekend coexistence without notifiable incident, joint operations are no longer considered safe.

Just in case this situation is relieved, the club is now suspended for two years during which time we will retain all current membership records per our privacy policy. If any current member wishes to be permainently removed from membership, please contact Adrian.

We will hold a final AGM in December 2021 at which time the club will be wound up, unless there remains a prospect of restarting model flying at Middle Wallop.

In the meantime you can still login and a members-only blog will be created within the next couple of days to which all members can contribute. We anticipate continuing to arrange social events during this suspension period.
