Welcome to the home of Watford Wayfarers.
We offer two flying sites, one for fixed wing flying and one for helicopters; plus (in normal times) a monthly meeting and the chance to socialise with your fellow members. Our fixed wing site has good facilities with plenty of model benches and a clubhouse for refreshments and shelter. So, if you are looking to join a friendly, relaxed club then look no further.
We currently have vacancies for both experienced fixed wing and helicopter fliers so, if you are interested in joining, please click here. We offer free taster sessions for those who haven't flown before and free fixed wing training with experienced instuctors. At present we don't offer training on helicopters but can guide you to a very reasonable helicopter trainer.

Getting started Training
Watford Wayfarers Swapmeet
29th April 2023 10.00am* to 2.00pm
The Hub, Gold Hill Baptist Church,
Church Lane, Chalfont St. Peter, Bucks. SL9 9RF
Our second annual swapmeet will be bigger and even better this year with more tables in this fabulous hall. Lots of space to sit and relax with delicious food and drink while you mull over how much you really need that model/engine/radio that you’ve spotted. Or have a go on the simulator to boost the brain cells.
Tables already being booked.

Next Club Meeting
The next club night will be on Thursday 23rd February, 8.00pm at
Meriden Community Centre, Garsmouth Way, Watford, WD25 9ET.
Rob is going to give a talk and demonstration of all things foam. Different types of foam used in planes, what glues you can use to repair them with pros and cons, types of protective coating and covering films available and what paints to touch up hanger rash. The talk will include examples of all the above and techniques for repairing your models.
For those who may not know how to use the BMFA online membership portal, and given the recent notice sent out about things that need to be done on the portal to allow the CAA to send out Flyer ID's, we will also demonstrate how to do this.
Needless to say there will be tea/coffee and edibles.
We meet at Meriden Community Centre, Garsmouth Way, Watford, WD25 9ET
