Come Fly With Us
Whether you are an experienced pilot or flying for your first time, Barnstormers Model Flying Club has you covered.
We have qualified instructors to help you build the experience needed to fly solo. There are many levels of flight training, from Solo to Bronze, Silver, Gold and Instructors ratings. Flight training is provided free of charge to anyone who wants to improve their skill level. Bookings can be made via our "BOOKINGS" page.
The club has its own trainer aircraft which can be used for first time pilots as a "FLY BEFORE YOU BUY" principle.
Proficiency training can also be done upon request. Our instructors are always willing to give advice and assist where possible.
Meet the Crew
Barnstormers Model Flying Club's community has grown to over 160 members who are available to assist you in any way possible. If you have a query, contact a member and they will point you in the right direction.
Many of our pilots are skilled in the "Scratch Build" area. This means that they build an aircraft out of balsa strips (Some from plans and some from memory). So come around and ask as many questions as you like.
Under 18 pilots fly free of charge as part of our "YOUTH PROGRAM". Inquire via the chat section on our website or mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Barnstormers Model Flying Club
Barnstormers was founded in 1972. Since then, the club has grown to what you see today, with the help of the members and the community. The club caters for many forms of flying, including fixed wing, helicopter, control line, turbine, drone and FPV. Over the years the club has been upgraded to include a bar, recently tarred and extended runways and taxiways, dedicated helicopter facilities, braai areas and secure parking. We offer a great experience for pilots and spectators alike. Ask any of our members for a form or apply online should you like to become part of this ever growing sporting community.
