Wimborne Model Aero Club

founded in 1973 we are a well respected club located in north Dorset.  We are a fixed wing model flying club of 100+ members many of whom have had a lifetime of experience in model building and flying. We hold many RC events for fun and competition throughout the year.  We regularly support local communities with charitable events with static and flying displays.
