  About DMFC: The Dales Model Flying Club  
  We are a small radio-control model flying club. We fly fixed wing aircraft, internal combustion-powered or electric, and quadcopters.
We are a small club with limited membership and unfortunately we have recently lost use of our flying site.
The club continues to operate while we seek a new venue, preferably in the area between North Leeds and South Harrogate.

We will pay top rent for a suitable site that meets the following criteria:

The required land has the following IDEAL requirements (we will consider any possible location).
If you can help please contact the club officers listed below:

At least 70m x 35m reasonably level and flat area for the runway aligned approximately east west.
Access and parking for up to 15 cars (25m to 50m away from the runway). Ideally this should be to the south of the runway.
No properties that may be affected by the sound of the models or under the flight path within 400m to the North, East or West
60m of clear land on both sides (East / West) of the runway (no tall obstacles of any sort).

Please note:
We take efforts to minimise noise, and do not allow especially noisy aircraft to be flown.
We insist that all our members have BMFA membership and insurance.

      Club Meetings  
  We meet on the first Monday of every month, unless this is a bank holiday, when it is the following Monday.
We meet at the Guiseley Factory Workers Club, Town Street, Guiseley.
There is a car park at the rear of the club, and the Guiseley Railway station is within walking distance.
The GFWC serves a range of beers and guest beers, and the usual other stuff, all at good prices.
Formal meetings are in the committee room, upstairs.
Monthly General Meetings start at 8:00pm.

  Junior Members Policy  
  Any Junior member (any minor under eighteen years of age) who wishes to join may only do so if accompanied at all times at the flying site by a responsible adult. Any such responsible adult will be issued with a membership card but will not become a flying member unless they pay the relevant fee. The club will at all times adhere to the policies set out in the BMFA guidelines for children and vulnerable adults.
The club has appointed the Welfare Officer listed above with full responsibility for the club's policy on children and vulnerable adults.
