We are a thriving and active club for model flying enthusiasts.
Set in the rolling hills of Angus, our superb site is a dedicated model-aircraft aerodrome, privately owned with excellent on-site facilities, including disabled access, chemical toilet and superbly equipped club rooms.
Our goal is to run the best model aircraft flying site in Scotland, and we are well on our way to achieving this!

AMFC's model aerodrome is located on the site of the old Stracathro Airfield. Two minutes away from the A90 trunk road, just to the south east of the Stracathro services, access to the site is both easy and fast from pretty much anywhere in Angus. Established in 1941 as the relief airfield for the historic Montrose Aerodrome, Stracathro Airfield saw use as a training site from 1942 for the practice of blind approach landings. AMFC has secured the use of 3 acres of pasture land right next to the old concrete perimeter track. We have three close-mown runways ranging in length from 180 to 260 yards, all of which can happily accommodate large scale models and jets. We have a club house with seating and cooking facilities situated right next to the pits so you can enjoy a tea or coffee and watch the flying. Our chemical toilet is handy if you're caught short, and there is easy access for disabled fliers. We even have a "control tower" that houses the frequency control pegs, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and is used for transmitter control during fly-ins and events. With sufficient car parking space for at least twenty vehicles, we have the facilities to host very active events. Find us by entering 56.758641, -2.586033 into Google Maps!
