Our flying field is located on the site of the old No. IX Squadron RAF Airfield at Henry Lane, Bardney, Lincolnshire LN3 5TP. We are really fortunate in having as our clubhouse, the old WWII ATC (Air Traffic Control) Tower.

We are mainly radio controlled model aircraft enthusiasts however we do cater for all disciplines of the hobby including:

- Fixed wing electric & i.c. powered aircraft, Gliders, Scale etc

- Helicopters & multi-rotor

- Vintage power

- Free-flight rubber

We cater for beginners of all ages by providing flying tuition and we have regular flying training sessions. We are BMFA (British Model Flying Association) affiliated club No. CL002190 and we operate the BMFA Achievement Scheme for A and B Certificates etc.

The club flying instructors and BMFA registered Examiners cover both A & B certs. If you have never flown before, this is not a problem as we operate a "Buddy Box" system, which is two R/C radio systems linked together for pilot training purposes where the instructor can takeover control if required.

The club welcomes fellow model fliers and new members and we have an ongoing initiative to encourage youngsters into both model building and flying. Anyone wishing to take up the sport of model flying and would like to join the club will be assured of a warm welcome and a helping hand as will those wishing to have a trial flight before committing. Just contact any of the Committee (see the 'Club Facilities & Contacts' page) for further info or come and see us up at the Tower.

Our flying field is a well mown flat grass strip around 150 metres by 40 metres running SW - NE which is large enough for almost any model and uniquely, we are open 365 days a year for members wishing to fly. Also uniquely, our clubhouse is a WWII ATC tower.

This website is designed to provide an up-to-date source of information about Bardney Flyers both for existing members and also for those who may wish to join or re-join the Club.
