MODEL aircraft enthusiasts from the Pietermaritzburg area can enjoy the Maritzburg Model Aircraft Club outside Pietermaritzburg on the Lion Park road.

The facilities include two tar runways and a covered pits area. The club caters for various disciplines including thermal gliders, fun-fly power planes, scale models, pattern aerobatics and helicopters.

Pilots meet on Saturdays and Sundays with flying taking place from about 8am to 1pm. There is a wide variety of competencies and new members of any proficiency level and age are welcome. We have several experienced and qualified members who will provide instruction to ensure that new members have a safe introduction to the hobby.

There are scheduled events to promote various aspects of the hobby, and members are encouraged to participate and increase their skill levels.

We invite anyone with an interest in radio control model aircraft to visit us one weekend and discover our hobby.
