GliderFest

It’s our annual 3 day flying event, with visitors from around the UK. It’s a great opportunity to fly in the beautiful scenery of North East Wales.

You’ll fly with enthusiasts, and we know you’ll have a great time. There’ll be some superb models to admire, both on land and when they fly.

In 2019 the event was held on Friday 6th to Sunday 8th September. We are planning another event in 2020, and it will be sometime in September, but we will finalise the date early in 2020. Interested? Then get in touch as explained at the foot of this page.

We meet each day at the Ponderosa cafe at 10am to agree on the best location to fly. Do let us know if you’d like to come, so we can look out for you.

The emphasis is on scale models, but we try to ensure sports models also get some flying time. We suggest you bring some models with electric engines in case the wind is light. All flyers must be members of the BMFA, and should bring their membership cards with them.

We have suitable slopes for winds from South through West to North, plus a small flat field.

See our gallery for pictures from previous years, the link takes you to 2018.
