Flying Information

Flying times are set out below

The fields that LMFC and the football club use belong to Mole Valley District Council. They were a bequest to the council, made on condition that they should be used for recreational activities.

LMFC have a licence from MVDC for the use of our field for a set number of hours each month.  We are permitted 10 hours of power flying per week. We divide this between Saturday afternoon, Sunday afternoon and Tuesday afternoon.

Additionally, there are 5 further hours available for silent flight. These hours have been allocated to Thursday afternoon.

Every year the wind, rain, flooding of the field and other difficulties always make some flying sessions impracticable. To make up for this, flying sessions on Bank Holiday Mondays and occasional summer evening barbeque events may be declared by the committee.

During the Summer months these are generally

Saturday 2pm to 5pm
Sunday 2pm to 5pm
Tuesday 2pm to 5pm
Thursday 2pm to 8pm (Electric only)

During the winter months flying often starts earlier to make better use of the limited light.!!  Members should preferably make use of the LMFC WhatsApp group to check attendance of a keyholder and their arrival time to avoid a wasted trip
