Welcome to the Dornoch Model Flying Club. This community based club, established in 2010 with the assistance of both The Highland Council and Dornoch Community Council, is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) who provide Insurance, advice and is run in accordance with their rules, guidelines and safety codes.
The Club has a User Agreement with The Highland Council to permit its Members to have legal use of the Dornoch Airfield. (N.B. Only Club Members or those with prior approval of The Highland Council are allowed to fly model aircraft at this airfield). Visiting aeromodellers are advised to contact the Club Secretary.
Being an operational airfield we advise our Members to use a ‘spotter’, in addition to which the club also uses an Air-band radio to assist in monitoring aircraft traffic in the area. Safety is the number one priority at the Airfield. A brief history of the airfield can be read https://dornochmfc.bmfa.uk/?page_id=255
