Dear Fellow Model Hot Air Balloon Pilot

"We are pleased to announce the formation of the UKs first official club for Remote Control Model Hot Air Balloons"

Model Balloons UK

The club has been affiliated to the British Model Flyers Association (BMFA).

The club has been formed to provide a voice on our sport and to get more people interested in the world of "Remote Control Hot Air Ballooning".

Our aim is to promote this growing sport within the UK, and to provide help and information to new pilots along with pooling the knowledge of the more experienced pilots.

Memberships are now available at £10 per person and for those of us who fly you can pay your BMFA Membership at the same time to include your insurance.

With your membership you will be the first to be invited to events and we will try and produce a bi-monthly news letter. We are at the moment talking to various RC companies to try and obtain a discount for Model Balloons UK members.

If you don't fly but would still like to become a member, to be kept informed on the UK's first official RC Hot Air Balloon Club, you are most welcome.

The club has been formed as a non-profit making club and all monies received from you will be used to benefit the club.

We are aiming to hold various meetings around the country and possibly a small competition at some time.

With our unpredictable weather we are also looking to find an indoor venue (Big warehouse or hangar) to hold a bi-monthly fly-in. If you know of one please contact one of our team so we can try and set an event like this up.

At the formation meeting a small committee was set up to run the club in the formation period.

If you have any questions or would like more details please email the membership secretary HERE

Membership application forms can be downloaded HERE for UK members, or HERE for overseas membership.

Many Thanks and Happy Landings
