Welcome to the Guernsey Model Flying Club website.
New items for sale from one of our friends across the water in Jersey; excellent value for great aircraft. Check out the For Sale page for more details on these bargains.
There is a selection of photos from the recent BBQ on the page - Chouet Bar B Q 2016 including some shots of a very interesting and different air ‘craft’ that Ian Barker brought to the site for us to have a look at.

Saturday 10th September – Jersey Model Club display, open flying session on Sunday 11th – more details to follow in due course.
Following a chance encounter with a relative of mine from the UK, it turns out he is a fellow modeller, but his interest is in a branch of the hobby I must confess to knowing very little about -tethered Hydroplane racing !!
Check out this web site to see just how diverse and exciting this area of modelling can be, some great historical info and model engineering projects – www.onthewire.co.uk
Following incidents of vandalism at the Chouet site just recently, the committee would appreciate any help from members in keeping an eye open for any suspicious behaviour in that area. If you need to report anything, either Mike B or myself should be contacted as soon as possible, so that we can pass the information on to the Police who are treating the matter seriously.
Committee Member details and Subscription Fees for 2016 are shown on the relevant page.
Important notice – Should you be unfortunate enough to have your model end up within the wire compound on top of the bunker at the western end of the Chouet site, please contact either a committee member or Ronez (256426) so as to gain access to retrieve the model.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ENTER THE COMPOUND WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF RONEZ
Members are reminded that no vehicles are permitted onto the flying site unless previously agreed by the committee. Any vehicle so permitted, must stay to the outer edges of the runways and must not drive across any runway area.
Pilots please note that you should not fly at Chouet unless you have renewed your membership as you will not be insured. Please contact Dave Wilkinson or Andy Best with your subs/details.
There is to be NO overflying of the ‘green waste site’ whilst it is in operation. Failure to comply with this rule will result in disciplinary action being taken… you have been warned !
Huge thanks to the members who continue to give their time to do maintenance of the flying site….
