BBC weather Forecast for BDMFC area

Our Club was formed in 1976 with the goal of securing a permanent flying site where radio controlled model aircraft can be flown and to promote the sport of model aircraft building and flying in the area. The Club has developed an excellent flying site at Blackridge and is fortunate to have the support of West Lothian Council who give assistance with regular grass cutting and allow us to have a long term lease agreement on the site.

Our flying site is situated to the north of the village of Blackridge in West Lothian, Scotland and is roughly halfway between the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, around 22 miles from each city centre with easy access from the M8 motorway (Find us here).

The site is reclaimed land, completely flat, grassed, football pitch sized and situated in open countryside. A very pleasant place to fly from.

Club membership is held at around 30 members, adults and juniors. Although the Club mainly caters for sports flying we have a few members interested in scale models and the Club hosts an annual scale model fly-in. Buddy box training systems and aircraft are available for tuition.

So come and visit us, our Club has a friendly easy-going atmosphere and visitors or spectators to the flying site will be given a warm welcome.
