Carrying on the pioneering work of the Ulster Model Aircraft Club before and during WW2, the Club was formed in 1945, developed rapidly in the enormous surge of enthusiasm for Aviation following the War. The main activity was Free Flight, by far the dominant form of flying at that time. This continued throughout the War, and the Irish Nationals were held at Baldonnell, with the prizes presented by Eamon de Valera. Harry Daulman featured prominently in these events and was a founder member of the Club.
The clubs emphasis is now “control line” at our purpose built flying circle at Tommy Patton Park, Holywood Road, Belfast 5. The site is suitable for RC helicopter and small RC flying models
We acknowledge, however, that the vast majority of model flying in the future will be Radio Controlled, to this end we are actively looking for a suitable site in the Greater Belfast Area. If anyone knows of a suitable site then please get in touch.
