Luton & District Model Aeronautical Society

Welcome to the Luton and District Model Aeronautical Society

The L&DMAS is a club for model aeroplane builders and flyers. We have about 55 members and operate from a flying field which we own in Great Offley, North Hertfordshire (between Luton and Hitchin).

We fly mainly fixed wing, both electric and I.C., plus gliders and the occasional helicopter. We are affiliated to the BMFA.

The Society has been run continuously since it was inaugurated in 1935, the first club newsletter was published in 1937

We fly from our field throughout the year, with flying allowed 7 days per week. Flying is unrestricted for electric aircraft while I.C. aircraft may only fly at the following times:

  • 10:30 to 17:30 (Monday to Wednesday),
  • 10:30 to 21:00 (Thursday to Saturday),
  • 10:00 to 12:30 & 14:30 to 17:30 (Sunday).

Most of our members have a BMFA 'A' certificate, with a fair number having a 'B' certificate. We welcome new members, experienced or novice and offer free tuition to learners. Unfortunately we are not able to offer helicopter training.

If you would like to visit our field please send us a message using details in the contact us section and we will arrange for a committee member to show you around.
