The Roundwood Model Aero Club was established in the 2005 by a small group of enthusiastic modellers living in the Wicklow / Dublin area.
The Club’s flying Site is located adjacent to Roundwood village in County Wicklow. The principal activity of the Club is the encouragement amongst its members of Radio Control model flying of all types of fixed wing aircraft. The Club has members who are active in all disciplines of the hobby and these include Scale models, Pattern models and Gliders. The Club welcomes spectators provided that they obey the safety rules and remain behind the flying line and pits area at all times. Unfortunately no dogs / cats or any other animals are permitted on the flying field for their own safety.
Flying takes place on most Saturday and Sundays throughout the year and most evenings in the summer months, weather permitting. In the summer months the Club can, by arrangement, provide a model for use by prospective members to give them the feel of the hobby before making any purchases and this facility is available most Saturday mornings.
The Club operates a training system whereby modellers are taught by experienced pilots how to fly their planes and there are regular training times set aside for this purpose and the club has a list of experienced pilots available to carry out this training.
