SARCH was established in 1979 with the aims of the Club being “To promote, organise, and encourage the design, construction and safe operation of radio controlled model helicopters”.
The majority of flying is on Saturday and Sunday mornings with some mid week flying. The club members understand that learning to fly a model helicopter is not easy and so we encourage beginners and experts alike to come and enjoy sharing the knowledge of others who have “been there and done that”. The models and equipment are very sophisticated, but it is still quite a challenge to learn to fly and the challenge continues even for the experts with complex and more difficult manoeuvres.
So whether you are an experienced pilot, a raw beginner or in-between, as most of the members are, then come and join in the friendly atmosphere provided by club members.
The field has three helipads to enable beginners and experts to fly at the same time. Instructors are available regularly to assist with the basic training or more advanced flight if desired. If you are interested in Radio Controlled Model helicopters, you are welcome to come to the field and have a look and a chat. Enquire by contacting one of the executive or an instructor for more info about the club and its activities or to arrange a time with one of the Instructors if tuition is what you need.
